Gemserv wins GB Smart Metering support contractGemserv is pleased to announce that through an open and competitive procurement process it has won the contract to support the energy industry in delivering Alternative Home Area Network (Alt HAN) installations to GB wide customers. Smart meters need to be able to communicate effectively and this can be difficult in buildings where there is a large distance between the meter and the customer premises. Gemserv will be supporting the industry to provide effective and cost-efficient Alt HAN solutions that will overcome these challenges and enable all homes to access the benefits of smart metering.

Gemserv was successful in winning three of the four business support service lots to provide the Alt HAN Company and the Alt HAN Forum with:

  • Secretariat and Administrative support services;
  • Legal, Accountancy and Financial support services; and
  • Enduring Procurement and Contract Management support services.

Gemserv has a proven track record in delivering services to complex, multi-dimensional programmes in the energy sector, underpinned by its excellent working relationships with key stakeholders. We are therefore both proud and excited to have been selected to provide this essential role to the Alt HAN Programme.

Our infrastructure and experience will support the Alt HAN Company, the Alt HAN Forum and the existing project team to quickly build momentum around the Programme, whilst also delivering stability at the critical mobilisation phase. Our flexible, adaptable service blends efficiency and expertise, which will be essential when managing the dynamic nature of the Programme.

David Thorne, Chief Executive, said “Gemserv’s Vision is to ensure complex markets work for everyone’s benefit. The Alt HAN Business Support role is an exemplar opportunity to pursue our core purpose and we passionately believe that we can be at the heart of making this Programme a success. We have the experience, capability and solutions to help make smart metering a reality for all.”
