Data science carries both huge opportunities and a duty of care. Technology is changing so rapidly; as are the public's views. In this new and changing landscape, this document is not about creating additional hurdles, but rather about making innovation easier. It does this by bringing together the relevant law in the context of new technology, and prompting consideration of public reaction so that government data scientists and policy makers can be confident to innovate appropriately with data.

The government’s main priority for the Smart Metering implementation programme is for suppliers to commence a rollout of SMETS2 meters following DCC Live. DCC Live is scheduled for 2016 and will open the gateway for a significant majority of the benefits of smart metering. These are expected to be delivered through the installation, enrolment and operation of SMETS2 meters operated through the DCC and it is important to ensure that the benefits that SMETS2 meters offer are realised as soon as possible.
