Some smart meters might more accurately be described as fake meters because they present false readings about energy consumption. A recent study from researchers at University of Twente (UT) and Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences (AUAS) has found that three-phase static (electronic) energy meters, which are replacing traditional electromechanical meters, can exaggerate energy consumption by as much as 582 per cent. Estimates of the number of households in the Netherlands with smart meters range from 750,000 to 1.5 million. In the US, smart meter penetration at the end of 2016 has been estimated at 70 million, according to the Edison Foundation [PDF]. wrote:

The UK government has been accused of burying a report on its hated £11bn smart meters project by releasing revised spending data just hours after the election of Donald Trump. The scheme will require energy suppliers to offer 53 million meters to homes and small businesses by 2020 and the implementation is to be rolled out in two phases. A previous official report revealed that the overall benefit to consumers amounted to savings of £26 a year – or 7p per day. But according to a report by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, first written in August, those consumer benefits have further diminished. The Evening Standard found that benefits are now £415m lower than originally thought – just £11 per household in 2020. wrote:
