In most cases, renewable energy obtained from the sun, wind and biomass is generated locally. To maintain the balance between energy production and consumption, you need 'smart meters'.
Local generation of renewable energy is only going to increase. We expect a large-scale roll-out of smart meters in the coming years. They are energy meters that can be read via infrastructures like fiber-optic networks, mobile data connections or the power network and can control the power supply. With its experience in house-to-house fiber projects, VolkerWessels Telecom is ready for a large-scale roll-out of smart metering.
