Executive Summary

This report provides product and portfolio managers in technology and telecoms firms with an independent analysis of the impact of the recent UK government smart meter communications contracts, announced on 30 August, 2011. Verdantix selected this subject for study because the multi-billion pound contracts will create a significant boost for smart meter roll-out and the development of a UK smart meter ecosystem. To better understand this topic we analysed the Department of Energy and Climate Change’s requests for proposals (RFPs) and data collected from the Verdantix Quarterly Smart Grid Deal Tracker. Verdantix finds that the UK smart meter ecosystem is taking shape, boosted by two RFPs with a contract value of up to £5 billion ($7.7 billion). Verdantix identifies opportunities for technology firms offering services that extend beyond those outlined in the RFPs, including the provision of smart meter data analytics and data security services.
