The smart meter rollout has been causing some ambivalence in the energy sector for many years – a lot of hustle, a lot of work and, at the same time, a lot of standing still. If you believe the words of Arne Schönborn, President of the German Federal Office for Information Security (Bundesamt für Sicherheit in der Informationstechnik, BSI), a milestone in the digitalisation of the energy transition has now been reached. In this blog post, we explain what this milestone is and what it means for the smart meter rollout seven years after the publication of the German Act on the Digitalisation of the Energy Transition (Gesetz zur Digitalisierung der Energiewende, GDEW).

Companies employ staff in different roles, which means they have different areas of responsibility. These employees often possess above-average specialist knowledge in a subject area or special skills. But this knowledge is often – consciously or unconsciously – not shared. This creates an environment in which the conditions do not promote the growth of knowledge and prevent it from being used in a targeted way to advance the company and to offer real added value to (potential) customers. How can a company promote knowledge sharing through a community of practice and benefit (potential) customers and interested parties? I will explain how in this blog post using the example of the community of practice for the topic of company pension schemes.
