The PSW Energy team managed the project from initial scope, establishing the level of sub-metering, implementing alarms/alerts, ensuring compliance, implementing energy awareness and providing auditable trails for continual improvement. PSW Energy engineers installed a complete wireless/GPRS communication solution for data collection.

The Measuring Instruments Directive (MID) was introduced by the European Commission. The European Directive 2004/22/EC came into force throughout the EU on 30 October 2006. The purpose of the directive is to create a single market in measuring instruments for the benefit of manufacturers and consumers across Europe. MID metering is required for meters used in any fiduciary (i.e. billing) application.
Landlords, estate managers and property developers should check that they have legally acceptable meters fitted throughout their premises. The use of unapproved meters for billing carries the risk of prosecution. A tenant is within his rights to refuse payment if his electricity bill is based on readings from a non-approved meter.
