European Smart Metering Landscape Report Edition ...


Member States are required to ensure the implementation of smart metering under EU energy market legislation in the Third Energy Package. This implementation may be subject to a long-term cost-benefit analysis (CBA). In cases where the CBA is positive, there is a roll-out target of at least 80% market penetration for electricity by 2020. By May 2014, Member States have committed to rolling out close to 200 million smart meters for electricity and 45 million for gas by 2020 at a total potential investment of €45 billion. By 2020, it is expected that almost 72% of European consumers will have a smart meter for electricity while 40% will have one for gas. The goal of USmartConsumer is to promote innovative smart metering services that have the potential to achieve energy savings and peak load reduction in all Member States. In order to do so this report collects information on the situation of smart metering and innovative services throughout Europe, identifying the current national regulations and the offered smart metering services in EU28 Member States and Norway. The information is gathered from utilities, European and national regulators, national energy agencies and officials, previous and on-going IEE- and other European projects, and other secondary sources as well as literature.
