Abstract: In this paper, we analyze the main characteristics and implementation requirements of the advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) systems in Romania, taking into account that the smart metering implementation enables the consumer to devise a custom-tailored strategy for his own energy consumption. First, we have studied a series of important aspects regarding the intelligent metering systems, then we highlight legal aspects regarding the implementation of AMI systems in Europe and in Romania. Afterwards, we have analyzed the types of energy consumers, their demands regarding the technological solutions for the assessment of their own consumption, registered by the smart meters and finally aspects regarding the emerging trends of the consumers' behavior. By implementing advanced metering infrastructure systems, through judicious investments and activities related to the consumers' behavior, one can obtain an improved energy efficiency at both national and international levels.
