Being able to integrate massive flows of renewable and therefore fluctuating
energies needs a new way to run the electricity grids. SMT is one part of these
new smart grids, and one of the first steps in the transformation progress from
today's grids to the smart grids of the future. Although studies show that the
overall economic impact of SMT should be positive (e.g. Department of Energy
and Climate Change UK 2011; Faruqui et a1. 2010), a smart meter opposition
has been formed, ...
