What We Do
As part of the Government’s policy for all energy customers in Great Britain to have access to smart metering it asked the energy industry to find a solution to a problem that could affect hundreds of thousands of British homes where the components of their “home area network” – energy meters, in-home devices and communications hub – are too far apart to connect with each other.
Without a solution to this problem residents in affected buildings would be denied access to the full range of benefits that smart metering supports, such as real-time information on how much energy you are using and new services like smart prepay.
What We Are Delivering
Our mission is to develop range-extending products and services that integrate seamlessly into the smart meter rollout plans of energy suppliers. Our services are for all energy suppliers and for all customers that need them.
Since 2016 through Alt HAN Co the UK’s energy suppliers have been working collaboratively towards this goal. In 2021 we confirmed Landis & Gyr (L+G) as our preferred technology partner. Energy suppliers will start using the L+G devices as part of their smart meter installs from early 2023 onwards, helping customers who would otherwise be excluded.
