Member States in line with the provisions of the Third Energy Package1. Subject to the outcome of a possible economic assessment of long-term costs and benefits, Member States are required to prepare a timescale (of up to 10 years in the case of electricity) for the deployment of intelligent metering systems2. This report looks at progress in the EU-273 to date and frames recommendations for the way forward.

There are two Staff Working Documents accompanying this report. They present the state-of-play of smart metering implementation in the EU, and include an overview of the cost-benefit analyses conducted by Member States along with related country-specific data.
