CGI to Manage Data for UK Smart Meters; Tim Gregory Comments

CGI-logo - ExecutiveMosaicCGI Group and a U.K. government agency are set to discuss contract terms for data management services that aim to help utilities save nearly $10.4 billion in costs.

The Department of Energy and Climate Change wants to get technical support on billing and information delivery of 53 million household and small business smart meters for a five-year period starting 2015, CGI said Wednesday.

As the selected contractor, the company will collaborate with QinetiQ and other partners to assist DECC from its shared services facilities and Service Desk Institute-certified office in South Wales.

“We are looking forward to working collaboratively with the stakeholders in delivering a reliable solution that delivers a smart energy future for the U.K.,” said Tim Gregory, CGI UK president.
