Regulations amending Swedish Board for Accreditation and Conformity Assessment (Swedac) regulations and general advice (STAFS 2009:8) on metering systems for transmitted electricity

6. Products Concerned
Electricity meters and metering systems for electrical energy

7. Notification Under Another Act
- 2014/32/EU

The proposal concerns the legal act in that meters covered by it are used in applications where there are also national requirements relating to the form in which the measured value is to be registered. This is not explicitly regulated in 2014/32/EU but is a technical requirement for the function of the meter when a setting needs to be adjusted before commissioning.

8. Main Content
As a result of the introduction of smart meters, Swedac needs to adapt the provisions relating to the registration of measured values. It applies in three respects:

Amendment to § 3 as a result of the hourly registration requirement (hourly metering systems)
- with which energy resolution the measured value is to be recorded
- how much the set time of a measured value may deviate from normal time

Amendment to § 6
- which measuring method the meter/metering system uses in case it needs to measure electrical energy flowing in two directions (input/output).

9. Brief Statement of Grounds
In order to strengthen the customers’ position on the electricity market and, at the same time, to develop possibilities for a stable and efficient operation of the electricity networks, Sweden has introduced an amendment to the Ordinance (1999:716) on metering, calculating and reporting transmitted electricity and introduced new functional requirements that make the electricity meters on the low-voltage network smart. The introduction of a second generation of smart electricity meters is a consequence of a number of EU legal acts such as the Electricity Market Directive (2009/72/EC), the Energy Efficiency Directive (2012/27/EU), the Commission Recommendation of 9 March 2012 on preparations for the roll-out of smart metering systems (2012/148/EU) and the ongoing work on ‘Clean energy for all Europeans’. Smart meters must be able to handle hourly metering (and in the long run also 15-minute intervals) and must be equipped with a user interface which allows customers to participate in measuring their data themselves in real time. In order to promote micro-production, they must also be able to record input and output from the electricity network in cases where they are used at a measuring point where the energy can flow in both directions.
