If you hadn’t heard yet, on Thursday last week, OFGEM finally announced a launch date for its long awaited Smart Metering Prospectus: Wednesday, 04 August.
It’s going to be a big day for Smart Metering in the UK and I’d suggest that all those with an interest in the industry mark the date in their diaries with a big, brightly coloured highlighter.
The prospectus aims to clear up uncertainty around issues such as standardisation, the roll-out implementation framework, and consumer engagement. In keeping with the large-scale project that it has been written for, it’s expected to be rather large itself – rumour has it the prospectus is currently weighing in at a hefty 500 pages.
It’s going to make for vital reading and, once it’s released, my stoic colleagues and I intend to start ploughing through it immediately, in order to offer a response as quickly as possible.
