On the occasion of the EU Sustainable Energy Week 2011, Günther Oettinger, Member of the EC in charge of Energy, gave a press briefing on 12/04/2011 in Brussels, to present a European Commission's Communication on smart grids. The Communication set policy directions to drive forward the deployment of future European electricity networks. Bringing together latest progress in Information and Communication technologies and network development would allow electricity current, to flow exactly where and when it was needed at the cheapest cost. Smart grids would give in particular to consumers the ability to follow their actual electricity consumption in real time: smart meters would give consumers strong incentives to save energy and money. During his press briefing, Günther Oettinger commented the latest developments in the Japanese nuclear crisis, after the Japanese authorities raised the Fukushima nuclear accident severity level to highest grade, from five to seven.
