CONNECTING THE SMART HOME TO THE SMART GRID

CONNECTING THE SMART HOME TO THE SMART GRID

The Challenge

An innovative smart-meter display manufacturer, which has 60% UK market share in Home Energy Displays, is helping utilities facing regulatory pressure to implement governmental programs for efficient use of energy and minimized ecological impact.

To support the roll-out of the UK Smart Meter program, the client wanted to build a product line for in-home displays (IHDs), allowing utilities and homeowners to take advantage of the benefits smart meters (gas and electricity) and energy displays bring altogether.

The Solution

Ness designed and developed the software for the IHDs around consumers having additional needs, with a simple and intuitive user interface. We also built a secure connection to gas and electricity smart meters in order to provide details and access to energy data services to the homeowner and to provide real-time data transmission to energy suppliers.

The Results

In the end, the client was able to deliver 4,000,000+ smart metering products to utilities.
