The programma includes both oral presentations and demos, including:

  • existing and emerging wireless/PLC/cable communication standards for smart metering
  • software-defined multi-standard multi-technology communication technology
  • regulation for smart metering in a European context
  • use cases of smart metering in electrcity, water and gas distribution networks
  • smart metering and monitoring in the grid infrastructure
  • smart metering for residential applications
  • proof-of-concepts and pilot studies for smart metering
