The number of smart meters reaches over 40 millions in Europe at the end of 2008. Far beyond the simple energy metering, those devices enable companies to inform the customers, to control the lead and to increase the energy consciousness. This paper discuss about the ‘state of the art’ about smart metering and their communication system. The paper also gives and overview about the deployment of the smart meter system and exiting remote energy management system and make recommendations about the functions. In this paper High level of application possibility has been proposed, which makes these meters useful not only for the utility but also for the consumers and though encouraging the energy saving in economical factor as well. We have also discussed the ways of remote transmission of consumption data.
