Poland defines strategy for smart metering implementation framework


Introduction of smart grids is a great opportunity for the Polish energy sector – a huge project that will connect the energy sector with modern technologies. It is a milestone in empowering the consumers position on the electricity market and increasing energy efficiency. The Polish power sector cannot remain indifferent to the challenges of the ambitious nature of civilization, associated with the modernization of the electricity grid. We cannot afford failure in relation to other countries that have implemented the development of smart grids hoping to benefit from a combination of "traditional power" with new technologies – stresses Mr. Mariusz Swora, President of URE.

The President of URE stressed that implementation of this ambitious project will change the situation on the energy market, enforce the position of consumers, giving them the necessary information, which will help them to manage its energy consumption and lower their energy bills. For the Energy Regulator the key issue is to define the state’s role in the implementation of smart metering.

The success of the introduction of a smart metering system in Poland is dependent on many factors. Currently, the primary task is to take a decision how to implement a smart metering system, and what legislative changes, therefore, are necessary. There is also a need to coordinate actions in order to achieve uniformity of the technical solutions and precision (as possible) in defining the functionality of such a system.

During the 4rd Smart Metering Central & Eastern Europe high level industry experts will present and discuss the way forward for the further expansion of smart metering in the CEE region. This year’s event will give you an in-depth look at the challenges, opportunities and recent developments in the smart metering industry in Central & Eastern Europe.
