Sweco to research options for hourly electricity meter reading
Swedish consultancy Sweco has been chosen by the Swedish Energy Markets Inspectorate to “explore the opportunities for hourly metering”. From July 2009, all Swedish electricity customers have had the legal right to request monthly meter readings. Now, the country's energy regulator is considering how to accommodate the need for more frequent readings. Results of Sweco's research will be available this summer. Commenting on the contract win, Sweco's Swedish president, Eva Nygren said: “We are very pleased to have won the contract, which is naturally a major acknowledgement of Sweco's expertise in the Swedish and Nordic electricity market. Experience from other countries shows that hourly metering has excellent results since customers can more easily monitor and reduce their own consumption”.
