The new digital energy meter are crucial to the transition towards a new energy landscape. The built-in technology receives and sends data, adapting the cost of energy to availability on the market at certain times and making it cheaper to use energy at specific points of the day.

Smart home, smart energy, smart meter
It combines greatly with smart home appliances.
