In preparation for a smart meter roll-out in the Netherlands the involved parties (including grid operators) set up standard specifications for the smart meter, the so called Dutch Smart Meter Requirements (DSMR).

During the handling of Smart Meter legislation by the Dutch parliament some questions and concerns were raised regarding security & privacy and the functionalities of the smart meter. The latter concerned the possibilities to connect external units such as displays or energy management system via the so called consumer interface (P1 port) and measuring the gross local generation.

The Association of Dutch Network operators - "Netbeheer Nederland" - created a taskforce that carefully investigated the (latent) wishes of all stakeholders regarding the functionalities of the smart metering infrastructure. This resulted into a roadmap consisting of five phases.

  • 3. Introduction – Status Smart Metering in the Netherlands Note [1]: Dutch Smart Meter Requirements Pilot phase
    • Dutch regulator is preparing legislation for smart meter roll-out
    • Legislation has been delayed because of political & public debates about:
      • privacy & security
      • customer freedom for acceptance
      • ‘ limited’ functionalities of a smart meter
    • Debated changes might result in a new DSMR 1 release

  • 4. Introduction – Status Smart Metering in the Netherlands 1 st evaluation 2013 2012 2 nd evaluation 01-07-2011 Basic roll-out (test phase )
    • As a result of the debates a ‘test phase’ including two evaluation moments is introduced
    • One of evaluation criteria during this phase is the energy saving potential for customers
    • In Q3/Q4 2010 Dutch government will decide about smart metering roll-out. This decision might influence the preliminary time line

  • 6. Introduction – Project Approach
    • Debates about ‘limited’ smart meter functionalities
    • Evaluation criteria in test phase a.o.:
      • energy efficiency & energy savings
    Association of Dutch DSOs initiated a working group for customer interface (P1) Working Group Project approach of working group 1) Determine needs
    • Stakeholders consultation in round tables
    • Possibilities to facilitate energy saving for smart meter customers
    2) Define needs in use-cases
    • Additional functionalities for customer interface (P1) & decentralized generation
    3) Analyze impact
    • Analysis of impact on market parties
    • Determination of benefits & costs of add. functionalities
    4) Analyze changes for DSMR
    • Analysis of changes on current smart metering architecture
    • Registration of changes for DSMR
    5) Evaluate position & next steps
    • Defining current position & next steps in roadmap for consumer interface
  • 7. Note [1]: extra value (financial) for consumers, grid companies and/or the Netherlands as a whole Note [2]: based on the current smart metering architecture (technical) and corresponding market model (responsibilities and roles)
    • Stakeholders identified 11 additional needs for smart metering
    • Working group captured those needs in use-cases
    • These 11 needs are mainly small changes to existing functionalities of smart meter
    Additional functionalities – Needs & Impact Needs
    • Increase update frequency P1 (E) to 1x per sec
    • ‘ More real-time ’ metering data (G)  1x per hour
    • Register decentralized generation data
    • Provide ‘ metering data decentr. generation’ via P1
    • Provide ‘historical metering data ’ via P1
    • Provide ‘power quality data’ via P1
    • Provide ‘date & time’ via P1
    • Provide ‘energy costs’ via P1
    • Provide ‘CO2 emission data’ via P1
    • Create bi-directional P1
    • Make min. power supply for P1 available

  • 8. Additional functionalities – Changes for DSMR
    • The five needs opportune for basic roll-out (2011-2013) have a clear added objective…
    • … and can be integrated within current smart metering architecture (NTA 1 & DSMR)
    • Dutch DSOs agreed on handing in change requests for these needs
    Note [1]: Nederlandse Technische Afspraak (Dutch Technical Agreement) Opportune needs Change requests 2010 2 3 4 11 7 Need Objective Source ‘ More real-time ’ metering data (G) Facilitate energy savings for customers Round Table Register decentralized generation data Facilitate small-scale sustainable decentralized generation for customers Round Table Provide ‘metering data decentralized generation’ via P1 Provide ‘date & time’ via P1 Synchronize date & time between meter and P1 units Int. survey Make min. power supply for P1 available Facilitate easy/inexpensive connection of P1-untis for customers (lower threshold) Int. survey
  • 9. Additional functionalities – Power supplied P1 interface Rationale for power supplied P1 interface
    • A major evaluation criterion will be the amount of energy savings
    • Easy accessible feedback is key in reaching energy savings
    • This implies an user interface which is understandable for everybody…
    • … and a plug & play display that can be installed wireless
    • Such a display might be an incentive for better customer acceptance
    • A power supplied P1 interface with RF dongle facilitates above mentioned
    • The costs of a power supplied P1 interface are justified by the benefits of energy savings
    High-level business case
