Berg Insight says Europe risks failing to meet 2020 smart metering targets

Berg Insight says Europe risks failing to meet 2020 smart metering targets

According to a new report from the research firm Berg Insight, Europe is likely to fail in meeting the target of covering 80 percent of the electricity customers with smart meters by 2020. Germany’s decision not to deploy smart meters and delays in the rollouts in a number of countries including France will result in a penetration rate in the range of 60–70 percent by the end of this decade. While lower than anticipated when the EU first announced its energy efficiency goals for the 2010s, the rate of adoption is nevertheless impressive. [...]
