The final results of USmartConsumer were presented in the EUW’16, within the “SMART METERING Hub sessions”
(February 22nd, 2017)
The USmartConsumer project (www.usmartconsumer.eu) has developed a variety of actions along 3 years to promote smart metering, simultaneously benefitting utilities rollout and services to consumers.
During the European Utility Week 2016 (EUW’16) held from 15 to 17 November in Barcelona, the final results of the project and the deployments in several very representative European countries, counting more than 300 attendees.
One of the keys to success has been the participation of top-level speakers from the four main electricity companies in the Iberian Peninsula (ENDESA-ENEL, IBERDROLA, GAS NATURAL FENOSA, EDP), the National Commission for Markets and Competition CNMC and European experts from Finland, Germany, UK and Italy.
According to the European Smart Metering Landscape Report 2016, this year the massive deployment of smart metering in Europe, with a cumulative number of 80 million smart meters, has been ratified, constituting a breakthrough in innovation for our society.
The USmartConsumer project aims to attract and inspire market players and consumers to benefit from smart meters and their potential to save energy. The project includes the assessment of smart metering services in more than 200,000 households in the EU, involving utilities, consumer organizations, regulators, energy market experts and service providers based on smart meters. Previously, in order to meet the interests of consumers, a market study has been developed on innovative services based on smart meters in the EU, as well as market analysis with consumer segmentation. National consumer awareness campaigns have also been carried out in the partner countries of the project.
The project has the support of the European Commission in the framework of the Intelligent Energy – Europe program. For more information, you can contact the general coordinator of the project: Francisco Puente, Escan, s.l., Email: email@example.com or visit us at: www.usmartconsumer.eu
