What is it about?

We analyze a set of smart meters implementation projects and provide insights and recommendations to facilitate smart metering deployment strategies. Several significant projects are analyzed on different fronts: scale, technology, economics and regulation, using a common methodology to unfold patterns that constitute key components of successful smart meters diffusion. We find Key elements and controllable enabling patterns from Europe-wide SM implementation projects are identified together with drivers and barriers for patterns replication.
