Abstract This project specified the data system functionality and architecture that would fulfil the information and service requirements of a smart energy system. This included data security and privacy aspects. Hitachi Europe and energy and sustainability consultants DNV Kema worked independently on two 100,000 contracts to identify any data system constraints that need to be incorporated into smart energy systems. The projects were launched in February 2013. The envisaged ETI Smart Systems and Heat system will depend on Information and Communications Technology (ICT) for its efficient design, operation and management. The ICT system will need to provide functionality right along the energy delivery chain: from supply to the end consumer. It will also need to support commercial activities such as billing, and to support academic analysis and review of the system during trials and proving.
