25 Years of our HISTORY

25 years is a long time in any sort of industry and when we look back over the past quarter of a century, the gas (and electricity) industry is no exception. The industry has already seen huge change over the past 25 years in areas such as, market deregulation, the introduction of RGMA, project Nexus, the DCC and smart metering and more recently the introduction of Faster Switching. The MHHS or market wide half hourly settlement programme,  is the next big industry change which affects the electricity market for which we are developing multiple DIP connected solutions. Datamere has had to understand these industry changes and adapt and grow in order to manage them, but at our core, we remain the same. Our aim is to provide innovative, market leading software, using our straightforward approach. Datamere is owned and run by the people working in the business and by getting this right, we’re celebrating our 25 year anniversary and looking forward to the next milestone!
