Smart Energy Desktop

The basis of DNV GL’s GB Smart Energy laboratory testing services is the Smart Energy Desktop. The platform comprises a suite of licensable software and hardware tools to support a range of requirements including the GB Smart Metering Implementation Programme.  

The Smart Energy Desktop is designed to support a high-level of automation to assure testing is conducted in a rapid, consistent, repeatable and efficient manner.  The environment can be integrated with a test management system to maintain a workflow and traceability of requirements, test cases and defects.  

The environment supports a range of activities including:

  • Functional conformance testing
  • Non-functional and performance testing
  • Security testing (penetration and fuzz testing)
  • Protocol compliance (e.g. DLMS, ZigBee and GBCS)
  • Interoperability testing
  • End to end system testing
