- Project specified the data system functionality and proposed architecture to fulfil the information and service requirements of a smart energy system
- Functionality addressed the question of data security
- Two independent contracts provided an optimum solution
This project specified the data system functionality and architecture that would fulfil the information and service requirements of a smart energy system. This included data security and privacy aspects.
Hitachi Europe and energy & sustainability consultants DNV Kema worked independently on two £100,000 contracts to identify any data system constraints that need to be incorporated into smart energy systems.
The projects were launched in February 2013.
The envisaged ETI Smart Systems and Heat system will depend on Information and Communications Technology (ICT) for its efficient design, operation and management. Any ICT system will need to provide functionality right across the energy delivery chain, from supply to the end consumer. It will also need to support commercial activities such as billing, support academic analysis and review of the system during trials.
