Feasibility study on the use of smart meters: using electricity, gas and water smart meter data for energy and environmental statistics

Using electricity, gas and water smart meter data for energy and environmental statistics

Explore the possibility of using electricity and gas and water smart meter data for energy, environment and other statistics (e.g. non-occupancy rates, household consumption). As smart meters are not yet widespread (but expected to become so in the near future), the study will be an intermediate step and also focus on using 'dumb meter' data available from distributor companies (many customers already input meter readings online).

Project Objective:

Exploration, Pilot intended to go to production to supplement existing data, Pilot intended to go to production to improve timeliness, Pilot intended to go to production to replace existing data

Project Outcomes:

Real-time low-effort statistics on energy consumption, and collaterally on social and economic phenomena like household consumption, non-occupancy etc. (where at this moment we have no timely or detailed information on)

Data Coverage: All available data
Coverage Geo Pop: Whole country / high % of market
Cost Comments: Not yet known, but probably free.
Coverage Geo Comments: Because the energy and water distribution competency is regional, geographic asymmetries in coverage may occur.
Coverage Period: Not yet known, but probably going back in time considerably, at least in principle.
