Metering companies

To the general public, metering companies are somewhat unknown in the energy chain. Compared to these metering companies, grid operators and especially energy providers have a much higher profile. The metering market is also split. For households, the metering market is regulated and grid operators are responsible for meter reading. For customers with a bulk usage connection, the metering market is liberalized and they must designate their own metering company.

Metering companies play a key role. They measure energy consumption, and the relevant fees are calculated accordingly. The energy transition has only increased the importance of measurement data – good measurement data, that is.

Place in the energy chain

Smart meter

Smart meters are currently being rolled out to households. A smart meter is a digital meter that is read by the grid operator. These meters record energy consumption at 15-minute intervals for electricity and 60-minute intervals for gas. Business customers use telemetry meters. These are read daily.

Digital transition


Business customers must designate a so-called “Recognized Metering Authority”, which handles the measurement and processing of consumption data. The latter in particular – data processing – is becoming increasingly important. Customers need differentiated overviews and in-depth analyses of their energy consumption. The market continues to demand more measurement data that is also more up-to-date, in order to get a clear picture of energy costs, charge these costs accordingly or start taking energy-saving measures. Through laws and regulations, often as part of the Energy or Climate Agreements, customers are also being forced to take these matters seriously.

Metering companies can demonstrate their added value in this regard. Sometimes that added value goes even further by providing the energy infrastructure, such as supplying transformers and charging stations and offering the associated services.
