On the basis of the lessons learned, the goal of Meter-ON will be to provide to any stakeholder an open information platform 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. European Distribution System Operators, regulatory bodies, the smart metering Industry, policy makers and other stakeholders of the European smart metering community will benefit from the results of the project. The work of the project will be materialized in public deliverables and outputs, aimed to be a comprehensive guideline (resulting from all the previous European-wide smart metering experiences), for any organization involved in new smart metering initiatives.
Meter-ON approach is based on the experience gained through completed, on-going or planned smart metering projects. Meter-ON results will be delivered in a three-step approach consisting of:
- collection 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 Consortium is led by the European Distribution System Operators for Smart-Grids, including 27 leading DSOs and association throughout the European Union and representing more than 70% of its electricity metering points. The Consortium comprises university-linked foundations (EnergyLab), technological institutions (RSE), applied research organizations and Communication Experts (ZABALA). The Consortium is differentiated in order to cover all the involved aspects of the above mentioned approach.
The Meter-ON’s results will be disseminated among the smart-metering community, involving stakeholders of the whole smart-metering value chain (including distribution system operators, meter operators, meter manufacturer, technology suppliers, system integrators, policy makers and technical bodies) and will collect their feedbacks to tune the Meter-ON execution accordingly. These activities will allow to improve the overall project output and the quality of its results.
