Smart Metering implementation in Europe: are we on track?

A high-Level Panel Conference on the implementation of Smart Grids organised by EEF Members ESMIG and EDSO for Smart Grids on 26 June will discuss on the results of the Meter-ON project, which collects the most successful experiences in the field.

According to the Smart Meters Industry Group, the reconfiguration of the European electricity grid into a “smart grid” may help the EU meet the 20-20-20 targets.“Smart metering combined with direct consumer feedback has been shown to increase energy efficiency by 5-15%, and in some cases up to 20%.” Within this context the conference, which is taking place in the framework of the Sustainable Energy Week, will focus on the status of implementation of smart metering in Europe.

The event will be driven by the Meter-ON project, financed by the Seventh European Framework Program (FP7). The project aims at steering the implementation of smart metering solutions in Europe by. On the basis of the lessons learned, Meter-ON will provide to any involved stakeholder recommendations on how to tackle the technical barriers and the regulatory obstacles for the implementation of smart metering solutions.

Registration to the conference is open until 19 June via this link:
