International climate legislation is driving the need for higher levels of functionality in meters used by the utilities sector for measuring gas, water, and power consumption. For example, businesses are being driven by legislators, regulators, insurers, and shareholders to begin to account for their Scope 3 emission levels and to incorporate climate risks in their reporting. There is a new generation of meters in development now that allows for better measurement and control of carbon, water usage, and consumption analysis for residential and commercial applications that is being driven by these regulations.
In nearly every case, the developers and deployers of these meters are interested in or require the use of LightWeightM2M (LwM2M) as the transport and control protocol. It is OMA’s goal to use its position as the developer of the LwM2M to help the industry deploy better and more reliably interoperable implementations of the LwM2M specification.
This workshop will address the needs of the utilities sector as they deploy new functionality through adoption of the LwM2M protocol.
