The data impact of smart meters and the implications for the utilities sector

Smart meters — the foundation for two-way communication and data exchange between utilities companies and their customers — can revolutionise how consumers use energy, giving them increased choice and flexibility in when and how they consume power.

In this webinar we will explore, the data impact of smart meters and the implications for the utilities sector, and how traditional suppliers can overcome increased competition from a new breed of energy provider.
