This paper presents the concept of an interactive and comprehensive platform based on an advanced metering infrastructure for exchanging information on energy consumption (and consequently on energy efficiency) in an urban and industrial environment which can serve as a powerful tool for monitoring progress in the transition toward a low carbon society. The proposed concept aims at supporting energy utilities in optimizing the energy performance of both supply and demand side aspects of their work and has the potential to fill a gap and help in harmonization of interests between the energy utilities, energy service providers, local energy agencies and citizens. The proposed concept should be realized as a platform with modular architecture, allowing future expansion of the user’s portfolio and inventory management (new energy efficiency measures, technologies, different industries, urban districts and regions).

Keywords: Energy efficiency, Smart metering, Consumption feedback, Energy behaviour, Sustainable development, Energy utility.
