Intelligent buildings are based on the use of smart metering devices. Smart metering provides instantaneous and accumulative metering information to the service providers on electricity, gas, water etc. This information is also given to the customers for the purpose of reduction of costs, energy consumption and emission of CO2. The customers' saving of energy can be adapted dynamically using smart metering devices: this helps that the power generation and consumption are equally distributed in

Governmental organizations are responsible for the permanent correct delivery of metering data and are able to control and maintain the metering devices. The status of current smart metering progress in different countries is given in the paper with examples of successfully managed smart metering projects.
