As the rollout looms, the complexity of processes at work in the rollout of smart meters and metering systems is skyrocketing. Many processes have to be adapted to the new requirements. Learn from the first movers what needs to be planned, decided, and organized before the first smart meter can be rolled out – and why it’s critical to do this early on.
