A key issue for the success of a smart grid is the capability to accommodate efficient smart metering. Following the trend towards timely monitoring of energy consumption and production via Internet related technologies and in-network metering platforms, we need to investigate performance-related aspects of smart metering and how they affect the overall operation. We present here our experiences implementing a prototype framework for smart metering, discuss on some of its aspects, and evaluate its performance.
