Importance The intelligent electricity metering system in Russia is a priority and crucial mission for further development and improvement of the power system. To complete the task, an in-depth analysis shall be conducted to understand national capabilities and determine what actions shall be performed to implement it throughout the country.
Objectives We explore global practices of creating intelligent metering systems and determine the current situation in Russia from perspectives of such plans.
Methods The research is based on methods of logic and statistical analysis.
Results We analyze the way intelligent metering systems are created in Europe and the USA and underline the specifics of the regulatory framework for such systems in respective countries. We found out the need to elaborate the legislative framework in Russia and evaluate the feasibility of all components. There should be the single concept and technical requirements.
Conclusions and Relevance If the intelligent metering system is created and implemented ubiquitously, this will help to scale the system not only for the electricity market, but also resource data collection services (heat and water). It will ensure the transparency of energy metering, energy supply reliability, prompt access to metering data, controllability of energy supply processes, security of the energy system.
