Leveraging the smart revolution - opportunities for energy businesses

13 Jun 2014

The roll-out of over 53 million smart meters over the next seven years is a huge and complex challenge. But smart is about so much more than just rollingout meters. If suppliers and distribution businesses use the smart meter roll-out as an opportunity to fundamentally review aspects of their operating model, then the smart roll-out has the potential to impact the whole energy value chain.
