|WP3 Smart meters|
Workpackage 3 (WP3) of ESSnet Big Data focuses on smart meters, and more particularly on electricity meters which can be monitored continuously at a distance. Its objective is to demonstrate via pilot studies how they could be used for compiling statistics on energy consumption, but possibly also on housing, household expenditure, environmental impact and energy production.
WP3 was carried out by representatives of four ESSnet Big Data partners in the first project stage (SGA-1): Statistics Austria (AT), Statistics Denmark (DK), Statistics Estonia (EE) and SCB (Statistics Sweden). In the second stage (SGA-2), their total number increased to six by the addition of two more partners: ISTAT (Statistics Italy) and INE (Statistics Portugal).
