Reportage: Energy Efficiency & Smart Meters , What's in it for the consumer? (2012.05.08)

Brussels The European Smart Metering Industry Group (ESMIG) held a workshop on 8 May entitled "Energy Efficiency & Smart Meters , What's in it for the consumer?", as we believe that consumer awareness and involvement are key-elements for the smart meters roll-out to be successful.

The day-long workshop focused on what Smart Metering means for all Europeans, the impact of Smart Metering technologies on energy efficiency, and how these will enable consumers to gain control of their personal energy consumption. Widespread adoption of Smart Meters is expected to contribute to the EU’s ambitious energy efficiency goals, which are set to increase Europe’s energy efficiency by 20% by 2020.
