Smart Grid GB initiative

PPC is to provide advice and support on communications infrastructure as part of a new industry group established to drive development of the UK’s emerging smart grid market and promote British interests in Europe and globally.
Smart Grid GB is an independent stakeholder group bringing together all those involved in the UK’s smart grid industry – including consumer groups, utilities sector organisations, technology suppliers and government departments, among others. As one of the first members of the group, we at PPC join leading players including Cisco, Accenture, Siemens and EDF Energy in helping to deliver on two core aims: to provide an ongoing vision and advocacy for a British smart grid; and to promote the commercial, environmental and consumer benefits that accelerated deployments of smart grid infrastructure can deliver.
With more than a decade of experience in smart city communications, PPC is ideally placed to provide practical advice on the most suitable technology options for networking smart grid devices both locally and across the wide area.
