Status Review on Regulatory Aspects of Smart Metering (Electricity and Gas) as of May 2009

This ERGEG Status Review provides an overview of the state of play regarding the introduction of smart meters in ERGEG member and observer countries. The report examines the issue from a regulatory perspective; that is to say according to 4 areas of particular importance when considering intelligent metering systems: meter value management; roll-out policy; access to data and privacy issues; and functional and technical aspects. Among other things, the report illustrates the diversity of approaches to smart metering, visible in part by the lack of common definitions to key concepts, even at national level.
