  • Notes: This seminar will be a timely opportunity to assess the progress and next steps in the delivery of the Government's vision for every home in Great Britain being equipped with smart energy meters, as the programme moves toward the 'mass rollout' stage in 2014. It follows the Government's First Annual Progress Report on the Roll-out of Smart Meters and Response to the Consultation on the Consumer Engagement Strategy. With the establishment of the Data and Communications Company (DCC) due to be finalised, sessions will bring out latest views on the wider service and 'smarter community' opportunities associated with the smart meter home gateway, and the continued security and privacy concerns surrounding the programme. Delegates will also discuss approaches to meeting the challenges in wider consumer and industry engagement as the rollout progresses, as well as creating a supply chain and workforce capable of delivering such an ambitious programme.
