Critical Software was presented with a prestigious Partnership Award by the Data Communications Company (DCC), the entity responsible for building and managing the UK’s smart meter network.


The award was presented by the DCC’s CEO, Angus Flett, in recognition of Critical Software’s exceptional performance supporting the UK’s smart meter rollout across a number of years. Critical Software was praised for consistently meeting its contractual performance targets on time and with high quality levels, as well as for its positive and proactive approach as a key partner in the DCC’s ecosystem.


On receiving the award, Matt Brake - Critical Software’s Division Director for Smart Technology Services (STS) - said: “I’m honoured to accept this on behalf of the team at Critical Software. This award recognises our collaborative, flexible and open culture with the DCC, working with them and other partner organisations to inject innovative ideas, energy and quality into everything we do. To be singled out in this way amongst a diverse and talented ecosystem is testament to the hard work our talented team continue to put into this partnership.”


The DCC is responsible for building and maintaining the secure national infrastructure that underpins the roll-out of smart meters across the UK – one of the biggest infrastructure projects this side of the Second World War. The wireless, secure network connects smart meters to energy suppliers, network operators and other authorised service users. Critical Software’s work supporting this project has seen it deliver smart meter testing, software development and device assurance over a number of years. Over 50 million smart meters will eventually rely on the company’s software.
