The deployment of smart meters is ongoing. They are crucial devices, notably to enable dynamic price contracts. In addition, a multitude of sub-meters and dedicated measurement devices could complement them to enable a truly consumer-centric transition.
The revised Electricity Market Design is introducing via EU law these new assets to unleash the flexibility of some behind-the-meter (BTM) decentralised energy resources (DERs) both through explicit and implicit activations.
The webinar will present use cases for both sub-meters and dedicated measurement devices, clarify their distinguishing features and different use.
During the webinar participants can submit their questions to get them answered by the experts in the live Q&A. In addition, both the recording and the speakers' presentations will be made available on our digital content platform The smarter E Digital after the webinar.
