Meter-ON is a coordination and support action funded by the EU’s FP7 and designed to steer the implementation of smart metering solutions throughout Europe by collecting the most successful experiences in the field and highlighting the conditions that enabled their development. Meter-ON will provide all stakeholders with clear recommendations on how to tackle the technical barriers and the regulatory obstacles endangering the uptake of smart metering technologies and solutions in Europe.
In more detail, the goal of Meter-ON is to, on the basis of the lessons learned, provide stakeholders with an open information platform. European distribution system operators (DSOs), regulatory bodies, smart metering manufacturers, operators, policy makers and other stakeholders in the European smart metering community, will all benefit from the results of the project. The public deliverables and outputs of the project aim to be used as comprehensive guidelines resulting from the most significant European-wide smart metering experiences. Meter-ON results are being delivered in a three-step approach consisting of:
- Overview of smart metering projects
- Per-project analysis according to the identified set of information domains
- Recommendations on the way forward based on the lessons learned from the most successful smart metering experiences.
Meter-ON’s results are already being disseminated among the smart-metering community and across the whole smart-metering value chain.
Research and demonstration.
The project runs from July 2012 – June 2014.
The Meter-ON consortium is led by European Distribution System Operators for Smart Grids (EDSO) (coordinator), and involving specific members: Enel Distribuzione, Enel Muntenia, EDP Distribuiçao, Unión Fenosa Distribución, Endesa Distribución, Iberdrola Distribución and ERDF. The consortium also comprises university-linked foundations (EnergyLab), technological institutions (RSE), and Communication Experts (ZABALA Innovation consulting).
