My big wish for #European #energy in 2023 is that the @EU_Commission and European #governments push the rollout of #smartmeters and #smarttariffs across the continent.
Why do I say that? Because #smartmeters and #smarttariffs give #energy customers the ability to control their own destiny by enabling them to switch off and on devices depending on how expensive #powerprices are.
#smartmeters and #Smarttariffs enable new #businessmodels such as what @OctopusEnergy are offering. In addition, #digitalisation will allow the smoother and quicker integration of #EVs into the system as well as smart #heating.

Wondering why the cost isn't right on your smart meter display? Well, let me tell you far more than you need to know about smart meters by way of explanation... This assumes that your display IS showing the correct usage, but the cost is wrong.

First, let's quickly talk about how smart meters talk to the rest of the world. Your smart electricity meter has a little box on top of it called a communications hub, which is sort of like a router for your smart meters. (2/33)
It allows the meters to talk to each other and your IHD over a short distance radio network called ZigBee Smart Energy (lots of other things use ZigBee, but Smart Energy is a special version of it). (3/33)

Brits will be #paid to run tumble dryers at quieter times to save UK from #blackouts
National Grid ESO is working on plans to be rolled out in autumn, people will be 'incentivised' to stop using energy-gobbling appliances at peak times

/2 National Grid ESO (Electricity System Operator) is drawing up plans for customers to get money back off soaring bills if they switch to off-peak use.
People with #smartmeters would have their historic usage compared, and be rewarded if they cut it at busy times.
/3 That could be paid directly or given as #credit on their account as bills spiral past £4,000 a year.
Sources confirmed National Grid ESO is planning to launch an industry consultation shortly, and hopes the policy could begin in October or November.

(1/n) #SmartMeters are great, but not a panacea.

Short thread on what's real, what's not, & how to bridge the top-down push with state/discom ground realities (esp. preparedness).

(2/n) [DISCLAIMER: I helped set up India's smart grid space. Am ~evangelist, but also a realist]
Discoms have high losses, partly due to theft/poor billing (and collection); other reason is tariffs < costs. A smart meter (esp. in prepaid mode) offers promise to cut down losses.
(3/n) But it's wrong to claim ONLY smart meters cut down losses - Haryana, Ajmer, etc. prove so. Smart meters can't detect theft alone - requires analytics and political will. 1st Q: are discoms harnessing the data they already have? 2nd Q: what of theft "above" the meter?

Great event and panel put together by @livemint @UtpalBhaskar converging diverse views from financing, #fossilfuel generation, #energytransition #technology and business operations in the #electricity value-chain! 1/n
As Power Minsiter @RajKSinghIndia rightly said, problems of capacity and #energyaccess has been solved, and the next problem to be solved is reducing #India's #carbonfootprint - #electrification of #mobility and #cooking is one pathway.
Increasing domestic and international demand for #electricity will lead to more #RenewableEnergy capacity installation; new connections and usage will ⬆️domestic demand, integration & #export (neighbors inc #Myanmar #SriLanka) will ⬆️cross-border demand, which India can supply.
