The Dutch grid operators defined the requirements for components of the Dutch Smart Metering Infrastructure in 2007/2008. These requirements are specified in the NTA8130 standard and the DSMR specification, including the companion standards for P1, P2 and P3. P2 describes the communication between a smart meter and the P2 metering devices for gas, heat, etc. The P2 interface is based on the M-bus standard with deviations, clarifications and additions.

The course will be taught in the Dutch language. More information on this course can be found on our Dutch website.

Upon request, Energy Academy can also provide an in-house training course in the English or Dutch language (content, location and duration of the course can be adapted to the client's wishes). Please contact us for more information.
