Smart meter devices for flexible demand-side management

Marc Fleischer from ABB dives deeper into the value of energy meters in energy management and how these smart meter devices can be instrumental in load management, also known as demand-side management which can improve energy efficiency and reliability, thus being beneficial environmentally as well as economically.

The basis for any energy management practice is measurement. Measuring not only the total consumption but also the various facets and their related data and calculations. Smart meter devices allow for such energy consumption monitoring that can enrich energy data management practices.


ABB’s KNX-enabled EQmatic Energy Analyzer QA/S along with their energy switch actuators enables energy management with accurate monitoring of energy consumption data as well as the possibility of load disconnection in 8 stages to avoid possible power peaks.
