Making smart metering happen – the influence of regulation


    The 3rd edition of Smart Metering Scandinavia is taking place in two weeks from now. During the 2-day conference, high level industry speakers will discuss the next step in smart metering; creating a profitable smart metering business!

    The Nordic region is one of the early adopters of the smart metering business and therefore leading the way to what now appears inevitable throughout the EU and beyond. It is now expected that by 2014, near-full rollout of smart meters will have been achieved in Finland, Sweden and Norway and Denmark.

    However once smart metering is in place questions arise around the operational challenges. What are the challenges and how to overcome these? How to continue offering high quality performance? How to meet market & regulatory demands? How smart is the management of your new communication network? How to offer value added services through smart metering and engage your customers in the process? How to move into an intelligent business?
