The roll-out of smart metering systems involves a lot more than the simple replacement of existing metering technologies by more modern solutions. It is based on a complex entity consisting of a highly interconnected IT infrastructure and communication systems that extend beyond the borders of any individual company. Data protection and data security pose an additional challenge, as they must be taken into account to an extent that raises a whole set of new tasks for the sector.
In our view, this expands not only the demands placed in the affected companies but also the profiles and skills of external supporting instances, including in-depth knowledge of all relevant standards and requirements stipulated by the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology (BMWi), Federal Network Agency (BNetzA), British Standard Institution (BSI), Forum Netztechnik/Netzbetrieb (FNN), Physical Technical Federal Institution (PTB) and German State Offices of Verification (Landeseichdirektionen), plus a detailed understanding of the required professional and technical skills relating to the necessary process cycles, IT systems and hardware components at the metering location.
We – m2g-Consult GmbH – are an innovative company with highly specialised consultants who bring complementary expertise from the fields of smart metering and smart energy to the table. Our approach is to offer our clients interdisciplinary support that transcends market roles specifically for this segment. We provide highly qualified, competent, practical and comprehensive consultancy services for our key issues at attractive conditions. We wish to support your projects with our specialist knowledge and transport content rather than learning on site.
Our team consists of specialised internal and, whenever required, external consultants, led by a management team with experiences in the sector and topic.
