Update on smart meter connectivity from Zigbee & EnergyUK

Event Invitation – Update on Smart Meter HAN connectivity: Tackling the Remainder

When: 8 October, 10.00 - 12.00

Where: techUK

Details

techUK is hosting a session on 8 October 10.00-12.00 to discuss the issues associated with Smart Meter HAN connectivity in the Smart Meter Roll-out. The session aims to look at the how 100% of homes in the UK can achieve HAN connectivity.

The difficulties in achieving HAN connectivity in Multi dwelling units has been highlighted as an important issue by both the National Audit Office and Public Accounts Committee. It is estimated the original ZigBee HAN specification (2.4GHz) and new specification (868MHz) will provide connectivity for the majority of homes, however it is estimated that roughly 5% of properties will still not be served by these solutions.

It is crucial that a timely solution is found for the remaining properties to ensure the roll-out is a success and this session aims to involve all stakeholders to discuss this issue in more detail and understand the current action for achieving 100% connectivity. We're delighted to have presentations from Gilles Thornet of the Zigbee Alliance and Alastair Bates from Energy UK providing the main presentations, as well as presentations from Russell Haggar of Xsilon and Steve Rafferty of Siemens.

The aims of the session is to

· Gain an understanding of each stakeholder position and the action currently being taken

· Begin a dialogue on the issues and discuss potential solutions

· Highlight the importance of smart meter HAN connectivity

Speakers

· Giles Thornet (ZigBee Alliance)

· Alastair Bates (EnergyUK/Engage Consulting)

· Steve Rafferty (Siemens)

· Russell Haggar (Xsilon)
