About Smart DCC

Smart DCC Limited (DCC), a wholly owned subsidiary of Capita plc, was awarded the Smart Meter Communication License by the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change on 23 September 2013. DCC is a special purpose vehicle created to carry out the Authorised Business of the License, which is primarily to establish and manage the smart metering communication service for Great Britain.

In 2016, DCC launched the data communications infrastructure to enable the nationwide rollout of 53 million electricity and gas smart meters by 2020. Smart meters represent a once in a generation opportunity to transform the energy industry. The rollout of smart meters will help consumers to better understand and manage their energy usage and to make better informed decisions about how they buy their energy. Accurate, near real-time information captured by smart meters will support the energy market in becoming more responsive, efficient and flexible.

The DCC smart meter communication service is a crucial enabler for the energy industry. The service will allow suppliers to install meters in every home and small business across Great Britain. Funded by the energy industry, the DCC network will connect smart meters to the business systems of energy suppliers, network operators and other authorised Users, such as third party intermediaries. It will offer a secure, consistent service for all energy suppliers and avoid the complexity and duplicated costs of energy suppliers procuring their own networks.

In its role as programme and service integrator, DCC is responsible for designing and implementing new services which will form the platform for a transformed energy industry.
