Smart meters are the next generation of electricity and gas meters and are being installed and connected to always-on Mobile Broadband via an Energy Supplier MVNO.

Meter Readings and energy consumption statistics are displayed both on an in-home display panel and using mobile telephones, PDA’s, the home PC or mobile laptop via the Energy Suppliers Internet Portal – linked to consumption monitoring and energy management software.

Smart meters will bring about the end of estimated meter readings and bills - and provide customers and energy suppliers with accurate information about the amount of electricity and gas being consumed.

Smart meters will empower customers to make choices on how much energy they use. Suppliers will install two-way communication systems using MVNO Platforms that display accurate real-time information on energy use both in the home and business, available to both to the consumer and to the energy supplier.

    • Smart Meters
      • Smart meters are the next generation of electricity and gas meters and are being installed and connected to always-on Mobile Broadband via an Energy Supplier MVNO.
      • Meter Readings and energy consumption statistics are displayed both on an in-home display panel and using mobile telephones, PDA’s, the home PC or mobile laptop via the Energy Suppliers Internet Portal – linked to consumption monitoring and energy management software.
      • Smart meters will bring about the end of estimated meter readings and bills - and provide customers and energy suppliers with accurate information about the amount of electricity and gas being consumed.
      • Smart meters will empower customers to make choices on how much energy they use. Suppliers will install two-way communication systems using MVNO Platforms that display accurate real-time information on energy use both in the home and business, available to both to the consumer and to the energy supplier.

    • Why Smart Meters?
      • In addition to the benefits described above, smart meters enable: -
        • Consumption to be measured over any fixed or arbitrary time periods
          • Typically at one-minute intervals for Smart Meter Energy Management Applications
          • 1,440 Energy Consumption Records per Service per Smart Meter per Day
        • Flexible tariffs that offer reduced energy pricing during off-peak periods
        • Capability allowing the customer to sell energy back to the supplier - which will facilitate more widespread adoption of micro-generation technology (e.g. combined heat and power plants, solar panels or wind turbines)
        • The same meter can be for multiple services (electricity, water and gas - subject to cost and availability) and will be used for all customers, whether they are on pre-payment or credit tariffs - and regardless of supplier
        • Energy Suppliers will be able to differentiate their energy products, services and tariffs through offering tariffs uniquely customised to individual customer needs (micro-marketing and mass customisation)
        • Energy Suppliers will be able to offer improved customer service through providing alternative means of displaying energy consumption – i.e. in-home display panels, the internet - via desk-top and lap-top computers, mobile telephones and PDAs, or using interactive digital TV (idTV)
        • Energy Suppliers will be able to improve the accuracy of forecasting their total customer energy demand at different seasons and at various times of day - and be able to purchase energy contracts more efficiently

    • SMART Metering Online EA-envision
    • Key Resources and Timeline
      • On Friday 17 October 2007, the ERA responded to the BERR consultation on smart and advanced metering for small and medium sized businesses (SME’s), for remote sites and other non-domestic customers. This response can be found on ERA’s consultations page .
      • The ERA has published a document on Principles and requirements for smart metering including source references
      • The ERA has produced a Market Model Definition paper , which describes the organisation's view of the market models for smart metering
      • The ERA is producing a series of Smart Comment newsletters in order to keep all stakeholders and interested parties up to date with progress on smart metering and the passage of the Energy Bill through Parliament: -
        • First edition of Smart Comment , May 2008
        • Second edition of Smart Comment , July 2008
      • Smart Metering Technology Trails – in progress now
      • Smart Metering Market Launch – 2012 (Supply of Smart Meters to new customers)
      • Smart Metering roll-out complete – 2020 (all existing analogue meters replaced)
      EA-envision
    • Key Resources and Timeline
      • There are still some unresolved issues around Smart Metering Market Definition -
        • The Government wishes to use Smart Metering as a market-changing opportunity to force the break up of the Energy Conglomerates into horizontal industry segments - in order to end their market dominance and encourage the entry of new supply market participants (Tesco, Virgin.).
        • Under the provisions of the Energy Bill, Energy Companies may only be permitted to participate in a single energy industry segment, and be forced to sell off their assets in other segments: -
          • Exploration and Production
          • Transmission and Storage
          • Generation and Trading
          • Energy Supply and Meter Operations
        • The cost of installing a Smart Meter varies between £500-1,500 per site (depending on technology options, features and functions) – who pays ?
      • The Structure Group (TSG Beranger) has developed a Market Model Definition paper , which describes the Government’s view of market models for smart metering. This is yet to be published due to delays in resolving the market issues described above: -
        • First publication date for Market Model Definition paper , September 2009 – deadline missed
        • Second publication date for Market Model Definition paper , October 2009 – deadline missed
        • Third publication date for Market Model Definition paper , November 2009?

    • SMART Market Impact
      • Smart Metering Market Analysis
        • The Government may wish to use Smart Metering as a market-changing opportunity to force the break up of the Energy Conglomerates into horizontal industry segments – so as to end their market dominance and encourage the entry of new supply market participants: -
          • Tesco
          • Virgin.
        • The Energy Bill may be contentious - Energy Companies might only be permitted to participate in a single energy industry segment, and be forced to sell off their assets in other segments: -
          • Exploration and Production
          • Transmission and Storage
          • Generation and Trading
          • Energy Supply and Meter Operations
        • The cost of installing a Smart Meter varies between £500-1,500 per site (depending on manufacturer, operator, technology options, features and functions) – who pays ?
          • Energy Suppliers? Meter Operators? The customer?
      • Smart Metering SWOT Analysis
      • Strengths – New Entrants
        • Energy Supplier brand Image and customer perception, lock-in to unfavourable long-term energy contracts
        • Chaotic & fragmented As-is Utility Technology Landscape and lack of coherent Industry Strategic Direction
      • Opportunities
        • Transformation Opportunity for new entrants into the premier Energy Supplier a) in the UK , and b) in Europe
      • Threats
        • Internal capability to understand and grasp the opportunity for managed change and to implement the Master Plan, As-is to To-be Transition Strategy and Change Roadmap
        • Lack of clear Sponsorship / Buy-in and technology research funding from UK / EU Governments
        • Probable further global economic downturn 20011 / 2012 (current economic uplift is a false recovery)

    • Smart Metering Business Scope Project Code: EA nnnnn Final
    • Current Business Situation
      • 2008 has been a volatile year for energy markets. In the past 12 months, many Energy Suppliers have had two price increases. Traditional media and internet are driving consumer awareness and transparency, generating high interest but negative views (Brand Survey - Energy Journal, 2008).
    • Current Business Situation
      • News reports, consumer comparison sites and forums are filled with angry and frustrated customer comments on the lack of control and certainty over energy consumption and how much they are actually paying. Huge direct debit increases, accusation of unfair demand for money from customers who are in credit, inaccurate estimated bills, large debt during direct debit reassessment are key complaint areas
    • Current Business Situation
      • At present Energy Suppliers produce bills for customers every 3 months – triggered by a Meter Reading event. This is an automated process which is managed via a batch schedule and only requires manual intervention should an account status flag, meter reading or billing exception occur.
        • Customer Clustering – Payment Method
        • Billing Trigger - Meter Reading Event (initiated by BG)
        • Meter Reading Type Precedence – MRA / COR / Estimate
      • An agent can trigger a bill outside of a customer’s 3 monthly billing cycle by raising an un-scheduled bill at the customer’s request (known as an ‘out of cycle’ quarterly bill) – where an MRA or COR supersedes an Estimate . 
      • Energy Suppliers offers a variety of payment methods to enable the customer to manage the payment of their energy consumption charges: -
        • fixed monthly instalment by direct debit (DD) via Customer Payment Scheme (CPS)
        • variable 3 monthly invoice by direct debit (QVDD)
        • variable 3 monthly invoice e.g. by ad hoc credit/debit card / cheque (credit card details are not retained)
    • Required Business Situation
      • Monthly Billing - Energy Suppliers wish to produce Energy Bills on a Monthly basis - triggered by a Bill Date nominated by the Customer - rather than a Meter Reading event. This again will be an automated process which is managed via a batch schedule and only requires manual intervention should an account status flag, meter reading failure or other billing exception occur.
        • Customer Clustering – Tariff Type / Bill Date / Payment Method
        • Billing Trigger – Monthly Billing Date (Customer Nominated)
        • Meter Reading Type Precedence – COR / MRA / Estimate
      • Any customer may trigger a bill outside of the declared monthly billing cycle date by submitting a new Customer Own meter Reading ( COR ) – which supersedes either an MRA or Estimate Meter Reading. At the request of the customer, this may in turn trigger a cancel / re-bill process (for an ‘out of cycle’ monthly bill) – subject to satisfying credibility / limits / tolerances. 
      • Energy Suppliers will offer monthly customers a variety of payment methods to enable the customer to manage payment of their energy charges: -
        • variable monthly invoice by direct debit (MVDD)
        • variable monthly invoice e.g. by monthly variable credit card / debit card (MVCC)
        • (Credit Card / Debit Card Token exchanged with Payment Processing Authority?)
        • (standing order and cheque payments?)
    • Customer Centric Retailing
      • Characterised by Direct Consumer Sales to identified Customers
        • Customer Centric Retailing is shaped by the Customer Relationship Management (CRM) Strategy, Micro-marketing and Mass-customisation
      • Powered by detailed planning of the Customer Lifecycle
        • Retail Proposition and Customer Offer
        • Customer Identification and Acquisition
        • Customer Experience and Journey
        • Customer Satisfaction and Retention
      • Driven by intimate knowledge of individual Customer Behaviour
        • Demographics and Ethno-graphics
        • Psychographics and Balanced Scorecard
        • Statistical Analysis and Propensity Modelling
        • Agents of Change - Cultural Identity and Social Transformation
      • Supported by Customer-centric Systems
        • Customer Information and Contact Management Systems
        • Customer Profiling and Segmentation Systems
        • Customer Insight and Loyalty Systems
        • Campaign Selection / Campaign Management Systems
        • Multi-media Channel Access and Campaign Fulfilment Systems
    • SMART Marketplace
      • During late 2008, many major Energy Suppliers have been trialling Smart Metering Technology and monthly billing. In 2009, First Utility was the first supplier to announce and market smart metering to the UK residential market.

They encompass a huge mass of detail and depend upon the success of a large number of embedded, mission-critical business and technology decisions.
      • Enterprise / Solution Architecture – There is an overarching responsibility to understand the many impacts of each of these decisions and get them right first time – or run the risk of potentially catastrophic business interruption or failure if we get these decisions wrong. A structured Enterprise Architecture and Service-oriented Architecture Framework guides us successfully through architecting, designing and delivering Enterprise Services via the Enterprise Service Bus.

        • (Credit Card / Debit Card Token exchanged with Payment Processing Authority))
        • (standing order and cheque payments?)
    • Monthly Billing Timeline
    • Monthly Billing – the challenge
      • Billing Cycle
        • Quarterly Billing produces four bills per annum
        • Monthly Billing will produce twelve bills per annum
      • Bill Trigger
        • Quarterly Billing is triggered by a Meter Reading Event
        • Monthly Billing will be triggered by Monthly Bill Date
      • Meter Reading Precedence
        • Quarterly Billing orders MRA Meter Reading Type primary for Billing
        • Monthly Billing will order Customer Own Reading as the primary Meter Reading Type for Monthly Billing
      • Cancel / Re-bill
        • Quarterly Billing will Cancel / Re-bill if an out-of-tolerance Meter Reading with a Meter Reading Type of a higher precedence is received after the Invoice has been sent
        • Monthly Billing will normally carry over Credit Balances to the next Billing Period unless a Change Event is pending (e.g. Final Bill, Change of Tariff, Change of Occupancy etc.)
