ZigBee Smart Energy is a standard for interoperable products that monitor, control, inform and automate the delivery and use of energy and water. By joining the ZigBee Alliance, DNV Kema aims to extend its diverse portfolio of global smart metering services and bring its wide-ranging testing expertise into the ZigBee domain.
