|Has the NRA (or country) conducted a cost benefit analysis on the roll-out of smart metering for electricity?||No||An official cost-benefit analysis according to the directive 2009/72/EC has not been carried out in Germany so far. Nevertheless, the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology commissioned a report regarding the potential energy savings due to smart metering. This report was written by KEMA, a German branch of a Dutch consulting company. It concludes that smart metering can contribute to energy savings but to maximise this effect, energy savings should be more heavily demanded by legal obligations (p. 16).|
