London, UK (PRWEB UK) 26 March 2015
Utilities across Europe face the prospect of meeting the EU’s goal of installing smart meters for 80% of consumers by 2020 (European Commission, 2015). Whilst each country is meeting these goals within different time frames, many are in the same position as the UK and are in a crucial stage in the road towards full roll outs. Additionally, gas, electricity and some water suppliers face similar challenges in managing existing meter assets and planning for the roll out and maintenance of smart meters.
Jeremy Yapp, Deputy Director, Smart Metering from BEAMA will be speaking at the 2nd annual Meter Asset Management conference taking place on 22nd - 23rd June 2015 in London, UK.
His highly topical speech will focus on consumer energy data and the connected home. By giving a status update on equipment availability and the role of consumer data, he will shed light on this pertinent topic. His unique talk will also address the remaining challenges to rollout and highlight the power of smart energy data.
This conference will cover issues relating to new smart meters as well as focus on looking at the retention of traditional metering and the many processes involved in switching them over.
