The 'Internet of things' perceptible takes shape; more and more products are getting communicative. Although the subarea 'Internet of Energies' is emerging in this fi eld, partly being a driving force it is depending on the advancement of other areas of life becoming smart. In particular the core area smart metering will not get consumer acceptance until coherence with other appliances is visible, showing the imaginary and emotional benefi ts of transparency on energy usage. The future of our economic status is based in the chain of Smart Meter - Smart Home - Smart Building - Smart Grid. In times of resources running short we have to redefi ne energy production, distribution and usage. The gas smart grid gets the important role of an energy repository. Electricity overrun will be converted to gas and used on power gaps by combined heat and power generation (CHP) to produce thermal heat and electricity again. The reissue of the fi gawa/gwf-Seminar "Smart Metering - Positions and Solutions of the Gas Industry" held on the October 28th 2010 at Munich, obviously show the high dynamics on development of this topic.

The dramatic occurrences at Japan force the transformation of the energy supply systems. Last technical developments are showing exciting solutions on the crucial question of power storage. Premise therefore is the cross linking of power generation with the power and gas grids as well as energy usage. Decentralized power generation is appropriate to ensure a secure and economic full supply within 20 years by combination of generating units to virtual power plants. First pilot projects are already finished very successful and others are ready for take up. Bidirectional communication is essential for the integration of former separated areas and the protection of data and privacy is of paramount importance here. To achieve interoperable networking between the areas of life consistent standardisation is a need. The national and international standardisation bodies are on the way under high pressure.

After two events on smart metering in 2010 the organizers fi gawa and Oldenbourg Industrieverlag followed the current market proceedings expanding their strategic focus.

Whilst Germany and Europe are still struggling for standards and legal guidelines there are several Smart Metering projects successfully underway throughout the world. Part 3 of the seminar report "gwf/fi gawa Smart Metering - positions and solutions of the gas industry" shows by examples from North Amerika and Europe which application areas are already implemented successfully and which role Smart Metering will play as piece of the large puzzle called "Smart Grids". Exact and effi cient meter readings aligned with a tight grid monitoring as well as cost control results in considerable saving potentials. Increased customer loyalty and reduced operating expenses are further benefi ts already proven in running smart metering applications. The OMS Specifi cation has been harmonised with the Dutch NTA/DSMR and is accepted as improvement and application profi le of the M-Bus standard. The results are part of the ongoing European standardisation process.

Change of user behaviour is on political demand as well as digitalisation of the energy grids. Both will be possible by innovative technologies only. Though smart metering must be considered as matter of information and telecommunication. Missing of reliable standards and confused legal and usability input are known as obstacles on the roll out of smart metering systems. Even the legislative drive for standardized market communications is coming up more and more. Solutions of different manufacturers basing on the actual European standardization process as well as the application profi le OMS are closing the gap of interoperability by selecting compatible variations within the standards. Comparing the electricity and gas usage, gas is dealed novercal so far. Increasing energy effi ciency of heat preparation could save quasi the power consumption of resident consumers. German regulatory body urgently disadvises from building a separated smart metering infrastructure for gas since an 80 % cut down may be achieved through joint usage by all sectors of energy and media supply. On Gas Smart Metering mature metering technology here can be completed with smart components. The specifi cation of the multifunctional Open Metering System (OMS) keeps the variety of options, enabled by the standards, in a straightforward frame. Concurrently it enables a wide spectrum of benefit options to all parties involved not at least by implementing Smart Home und Smart Grid applications. Utilising all synergy effects Smart Metering can be arranged economical by using OMS.
