Detail of outcome
This document fulfils three primary purposes: it sets out the government’s response to comments received on two supplementary SEC consultations published in April 2013; it sets out the final legal text of Stage 1 of the SEC; and it puts forward proposals to designate the Smart Energy Code and the Charging Methodology for DCC Services.
Representations or objections concerning these proposals may be submitted to the Smart Metering Implementation Programme by 14 August 2013.
This document supplements the Government’s consultations on the draft legal text of the Smart Energy Code (SEC) and the Data and Communications Company (DCC) Licence – two key elements of the regulatory framework supporting the roll-out of smart metering in Great Britain.
It seeks views on proposed legal text to cover the transitional period between the point at which the DCC is awarded its Licence, to the time when the full smart metering arrangements are in place.
