Members of the EUTC are operating critical energyinfrastructure by means of many proprietarytelecommunication solutions.Member of the EUTC require reliable telecom infrastructures to operate the critical Energy infrastructureduring the energy transition. The European Council has ordered (on February 4 th 2011) the EU Commissionto work out standards for EV, Smart Grid and Smart Meters contributing to the energy transition.Member of the EUTC require standardizedtelecommunication solutions suitable to address theenergy telecommunication demand.Standardization is required sothat European market can beseen as one marketStandardization isrequired to achieveinteroperabilityStandardization isrequired to create alevel playing fieldStandard setof demands for*MNO-M2MBy allocatingEu wide PrivateSpectrumBy allocatingPrivate SharednetworksInteroperabilityfor exchangeof venderInteroperabilityfor exchangeof technologylevel playingfield forvendorslevel playingfield fortechnology* EV = Electrical Vehicles; MNO = Mobile Network Operator; M2M = Machine to machine


EUROPEAN UTILITIES TELECOMS COUNCIL – SPECTRUM GROUPIssues• All starting from different positions.• Timescales driven by EU policy & national regulation.• Business case may be questionable.• Requirements will differ across the industry.• Essential requirements – back-up power, low latency,certain access not provided by commercial operators.• Access to spectrum differs across the EU.• Charging mechanisms for utility spectrum differ.• Different current uses for targeted spectrum.• Standards not yet in place.• Need to provide telecoms for networks as they will look in2020/2030, not today.• Energy security, cost & CO2 reduction will not wait.• Synergies between electricity, water & gas.• Similarities with emergency services & transportation.Utility Wireless Workshop: 21 March 2011 - Brussels

EUROPEAN UTILITIES TELECOMS COUNCIL – SPECTRUM GROUPEU Decision establishing a RadioSpectrum Policy Programme (2)Article 7 (2)“Spectrum needs for specific Union policies”“In cooperation with the Member States, theCommission shall conduct studies and examine thepossibility to design authorisation schemes whichwould contribute to a low-carbon policy, by savingenergy in the use of spectrum as well as by makingspectrum available for wireless technologies with apotential for improving energy saving, includingsmart energy grids and smart metering systems.”Utility Wireless Workshop: 21 March 2011 - Brussels


EUROPEAN UTILITIES TELECOMS COUNCIL – SPECTRUM GROUPEU Decision establishing a RadioSpectrum Policy Programme (3)Article 8“Inventory and monitoring of existing uses of andemerging needs for spectrum”“The Commission, assisted by the Member States,which shall provide all appropriate information onspectrum use, shall create an inventory of existingspectrum use and of possible future needs forspectrum in the Union, in particular in the rangefrom 300 MHz to 3 GHz.”Utility Wireless Workshop: 21 March 2011 - Brussels


Chapter 1 Energy paragraph 4The internal market should be completed by 2014 so as to allow gas and electricity to flowfreely. This requires in particular that in cooperation with ACER national regulators andtransmission systems operators step up their work on market coupling and guidelines andon network codes applicable across European networks.Member States, in liaison with European standardization bodies and industry,are invited to accelerate work with a view to adopting technical standards forelectric vehicle charging systems by mid-2011 and for smart grids andmeters by the end of 2012.The Commission will regularly report on the functioning of the internal energy market,paying particular attention to consumers including the more vulnerable ones in line withthe Council conclusions of 3 December 2010.


EUROPEAN UTILITIES TELECOMS COUNCIL – SPECTRUM GROUPRoadmap* Engage with Commission & Parliament.* Track existing standardisation.* Refine electricity industry requirements.* Assess suitable technologies.* Investigate spectrum options.* Track other developments world-wide.* Produce report for EUTC Conferencein Madrid, October 2011.Utility Wireless Workshop: 21 March 2011 - Brussels
