SMETS2 Interoperability- Suppliers Firmware Consultation
In autumn of 2019 BEIS undertook an independent review of assurance for SMETS2 device interoperability on change. The final report was submitted to BEIS on 29 October 2019 and set out ten recommendations relating to test assurance and firmware management. On the request of BEIS the SEC Panel accepted to investigate and action six of these recommendations, three of which relate to firmware management
To support the delivery of these recommendations SECAS is seeking a better understanding of firmware management arrangements and any issues with them. SECAS is therefore requesting assistance from Suppliers to understand:
- the maturity of firmware management processes across industry,
- the challenges and issues that Suppliers may be facing with accessing and deploying firmware, and
- the scale and extent of testing against device and firmware version combinations for both installed and gained devices.
Who should respond?
- Energy Suppliers
