Description

Designing an Innovator Portal - allowing innovators to access and re-use the DCC network

A workshop to explore potential designs for an Innovator Portal supporting organisations offering new services and technologies based on energy smart meters. The portal is being developed by the Data Communications Company (Smart DCC), a Licenced monopoly responsible developing and maintaining the nationwide, highly secure data and communications infrastructure to support the roll out of smart meters.

This secure infrastructure has great potential to enable new services and innovation for the further benefit of society, not only in energy where it will support the transition to a flexible energy system, but in other areas too. Through access to nationwide connectivity (99.5% GB coverage) and data flows from every home and small business, innovative companies could develop a whole host of exciting new products and services that leverage the technology infrastructure.

The aim of the workshop is to help define the requirements for the Innovator Portal. Smart DCC want to understand the best approach to develop a high-quality portal that works well for any prospective innovator wishing to access and re-use the DCC network. Your views on the features needed, the latest tools and techniques, as well as a sound understanding of what innovators might look for to enable them to develop great products and services will greatly help.

The day will include interactive and facilitated roundtable discussions. Outputs from the sessions will be shared afterwards and as a next stage, DCC anticipate procuring support from industry in developing the portal.

The event is being organised jointly with Innovate UK, the Knowledge Transfer Network and Smart DCC, with a selected audience of key stakeholders and innovators to explore grand challenges in this area.
