Siemens in UK smart meter trial with ScottishPower

Siemens, utility ScottishPower and technology company SmartReach are launching a smart meter trial in the UK.

The trial will cover 1000 homes in Ipswich in the east of England. Siemens will co-ordinate, plan and manage the installation of meters and will also provide data to ScottishPower on a range of metrics to assess the speed and success of the trial, as well as meter readings.

SmartReach, which is a collaboration of technology companies Arqiva, BT, BAE Systems Detica and Sensus, is providing a long-range radio-based communications network for communicating with the meters.
