ERGEG Position Paper on Smart Metering with a Focus on Electricity Regulation

Starting with the analysis of existing or planned smart metering schemes, this document lists some recommendations for regulators and some policy options adoptable by them, according to both types of metering frameworks established in EU Member States: regulated and liberalised. Due to the country-specific role of regulators with regard to metering arrangements, some of the results of this report might not be relevant to all regulators or applicable to the individual Member States. The powers and responsibilities of the national regulatory agencies differ from country to country as does the situation regarding both metering and market opening. It is therefore difficult to draw general conclusions which are fully applicable to all countries.
