Meter-ON makes recommendations on smart metering roll-outs

The successful deployment of smart metering will be an important step for smart grid development in almost every EU member state and, as such, an important basis for reaching the EU’s energy, climate change and internal market objectives.

Today the two year project publishes its final results, a combination of observations, lessons learnt and recommendations for policy makers, national regulatory authorities (NRAs), distribution system operators (DSOs) and other stakeholders interested in positively impacting future smart metering deployment efforts.

The final Meter-ON recommendations are grouped into four categories:

  • Market models, incentives, cost distribution, and regulation
  • Data flows, security and privacy issues
  • Consumer awareness and engagement

The project results will be presented at European Utility Week in Amsterdam on November 6th 2014, as part of the Case Study programme.

The Meter-ON final report, recommendations leaflet and all deliverables of the project are accessible via the project website:


The Meter-ON project is a coordination and support action financed by the EU’s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7), with the intention of facilitating the large-scale deployment of smart metering infrastructures in Europe through the assessment of existing experience and provision of recommendations to stakeholders on how to tackle technical and regulatory obstacles.

The project’s target audience is NRAs, political decision makers, smart metering industry (technology providers, European electricity system operators, in particular DSOs, and European standardisation bodies.
