2012 Recommendation on smart metering systems roll-out

As more EU countries progress in the launch of smart meters, we produced common guidelines to ensure that the cost benefit analysis is comparable, relevant and based on comprehensive and realistic deployment action plans.
This study has been used as the technical basis for the Recommendation on smart metering deployment. The new guidelines intend to facilitate EU countries in fulfilling the provision of the Directive on the internal markets 2009/72/EC, which encourages Member States to deploy Smart Grids and smart metering systems.
