Mandated smart meters in EU by 2020 | Discover how leading Utilities across Europe are managing smart meter rollouts


London (PRWEB UK) 15 March 2014

Utilities across Europe face the prospect of meeting the EU’s goal of installing smart meters for 80% of consumers by 2020. National plans for meeting this target vary considerably across the continent with Italy and Sweden having completed physical roll out without fully utilising smart meter functionality. Gas, electricity, and water suppliers face similar challenges in managing existing meter assets and where appropriate planning for the roll out and maintenance of smart meters.

SMi’s Meter Asset Management and Operations will feature smart meter operations and asset managers from across Europe sharing valuable insight on the following topics against a backdrop of smart meter roll out programmes across the electricity, gas, and water utilities:

The foundation of smart meter roll out success – asset identification and the cradle-to-grave database
Keeping track and repatriation – installing replacement meters and managing asset flows
Implementing best practice to protect the energy supplier-customer relationship
Gearing up for the increased complexity of smart meter maintenance
Meter testing: dealing with a mixed asset base of approved and certified assets
Managing hard-to-reach environments and the associated M2M communication challenges
Overcoming the challenges of meter installation in a multi-manufacturer environment
Managing workforce training and retention to deliver a smart meter installation programme
Unusual installation scenarios – keeping the workforce safe and managing customer expectations
Improving the management of time slots for meter installation and maintenance appointments
Maintaining the customer experience and acceptance: Delivering smart meter aftercare excellence
Asset interoperability
Sustainability in the distribution network – will smart meters help to deliver this?
