A smart meter rollout that takes place in two stages. A small-scale rollout was in place for pilot purposes from 2012. During the small-scale rollout some 600,000 smart meters for electricity and gas were installed during regular meter replacements (e.g. depreciation), in newly built houses, during large-scale renovations and by customer request. This phase and its effects were monitored. Based on the experiences, it was decided to continue with a larger scale rollout from 2015 onwards. The aim is to have smart meters fitted in at least 80% of households and small businesses by 2020, as mandated through theEU 3rd Energy Package.
