Smart Energy 1.4 chosen for UK smart meter roll-out
Smart Energy 1.4 by the Zigbee Alliance was chosen by the UK as a well-developed solution that is adaptable and easy to implement on a country-wide scale for the county’s smart meter roll-out.

The Smart Energy standard currently has 700 existing certified products and a large network of suppliers. To assist new developers, the Zigbee Alliance has opened certification for the updated Smart Energy 1.4 application standard, which addresses the needs from the UK’s decision to mandate all energy suppliers to offer smart meters to every home by 2020. The addition to Smart Energy Certification also allows the Zigbee Alliance to accredit products with the ability to meet regional frequency requirements, extending connectivity options.

The benefits of introducing simultaneous operation on sub-GHz and 2.4 GHz bands into Certification for the Smart Energy 1.4 standard include increased savings for utilities and consumers and a competitive marketplace with multi-vendors.

Last month, the first product to complete the certification program was a communications hub solution for Great Britain’s smart metering program, developed by EDMI.

Some of the world’s leading companies have deployed Zigbee Alliance Certified Smart Energy products, including BC Hydro, EDMI, General Electric, Honeywell, Itron, Landis+Gyr, LG, Pacific Gas & Electric, Panasonic, Schneider Electric, Smart Meter Texas and Toshiba.
