The shift from analog to digital remote reading meters is changing the submetering industry – with new technologies required to meet regulatory demands.

The European Energy Directive (EED) aims to increase European energy efficiency by 32.5% by 2032. As roughly 40% of the energy is used for warm water and heating within buildings, smart submetering offers an efficient solution, ensuring that individuals in apartment buildings can be billed based on their consumption without on-premises visits. Frequent insights on consumption data encourage energy conservation among consumers. Three target dates have been determined in the EED.
Newly installed submetering devices need to be remotely readable at least every 3 months.
Monthly consumption data must be provided to the end-user - data should be available as frequent as possible.
All households must have heat and water meters installed, which can be read remotely – data should be available as frequent as possible.
The emnify communication platform simplifies the connection and management of your submetering gateways and allows you to easily integrate connectivity into your business processes.
