ESMIG is the voice of European smart energy solution providers. ESMIG’s member companies provide products, information technology and services for multi-commodity metering, display and management of energy consumption and production at consumer premises.
ESMIG advocates for a regulatory framework that accelerates the introduction of its members’ innovative products and services, which are fundamental to the smart energy and water systems of Europe’s future.
ESMIG actively contributes to the creation of a competitive internal energy market by development of architectures and open standards that allow efficient implementation and integration of new energy management technologies and services.
10 years of digitising Europe’s energy
In 2008, five meter manufacturers created ESMIG and it all started at European Utility Week (back then, known as Metering Europe). They strongly believed that European energy measurement markets were about to undergo significant changes, with utilities making substantial investments in smart metering. ESMIG’s goal was to help anticipate and plan for these changes, creating an organisation that better reflected the interests of all industry players.
In recent years, it has become clear that realising the full benefits of smart meters means considering the associated impact of communications technologies, flexible demand, data, security, interoperability and consumer engagement. Our membership has come to reflect this development and we have evolved from the smart metering industry group to become the smart energy solution providers.
