The potential of smart metering and the commercial opportunities for utilities are immense. With the emerging smart metering technologies, valuable consumption data becomes available.

However, it is yet unclear how to effectively use the data beyond billing and network management. Hot topics remain the choice of suitable interfaces and data representation approaches to induce sustainable behavioral change, the integration of novel energy"aware devices in the emerging infrastructure, and the development of privacy protection methods.
