The Meters and More Association was founded by Enel and Endesa in 2010 to establish a European-wide standard for smart meters and associated services. It now has 42 members, including worldwide leading stakeholders, utilities, manufacturers and institutions representing the entire smart grid value chain. According to the Association, they are “all committed for the implementation of interoperable and open smart grid systems.”
According to Meters and More, the recent decision of the Association to also support the DLMS/COSEM profile over the open Meters and More technology guarantees additional choice for the best utilization of the PLC communication protocol provided by Meters and More in the growing market of Smart Meters in the world, where Meter & More protocol is the recognized leader in deployments and performances.
“2014 promises to be a breakthrough year for the Meters and Meters Association” said the General Manager of Meters and More Giacomo Gargano: “Meters and More specifications are proposed by CENELEC as technical standard and, being already one step ahead in smart metering solutions towards full smart grid realization, the Meters and More Association expands its own protocol specification to widen support for operators and utilities committed to deploy Smart Grids, Smart Homes and Smart Cities ”.
Meters and More is an advanced generation PLC communication protocol, in line with the European Commission’s Mandate 441 to achieve standardization across Europe.
