Business Sweden has an extensive network among Dutch companies within the power and utility industry, and especially the grid owners, due to numerous projects and events have taken place within this sector over the last years.
Since 2011 Business Sweden has conducted interviews with power and utility companies in order to further understand the needs regarding the coming smart metering roll-out. The market interviews have showed that the Dutch power and utility sector is currently setting up guidelines for future processes, evaluating roll outs on other markets and looking into new technology and communication solutions related to the smart metering roll out.
In December 2012 Business Sweden arranged a smart metering executive seminar with presentations, a panel debate and meetings between Swedish suppliers and Dutch and Belgian power and utility companies. In total 35 Dutch and Belgian power and utility representatives attended the event, among those all the major grid owners. The Dutch and Swedish side has shown interest in following up this seminar with further meetings and presentations from the Swedish suppliers and DSO’s.
As a result of this Business Sweden has decided to organize workshops, where Dutch power and utility companies will get the opportunity to listen to best practice cases and lessons learned by Swedish companies and DSO’s regarding smart metering. For the participating Swedish companies this is an excellent opportunity to learn more about the Dutch smart metering roll out and to establish new contacts with important potential clients and partners in order to enter the market.
