Embedded Networks

Embedded networks are generally used where the building or subdivision owner has an incoming gate meter, and they allow energy retailers to trade over the network which is owned and maintained by a third party, the embedded network owner.

This owner pays for the network services at the gate meter and recovers the embedded network costs from the retailers that trade across its network. Smart Power’s subsidiary, Smart Billing Solutions, can manage the switch to an embedded network, as well as the ongoing administration.
