Electronic and smart electricity meters traditionally use as user interface liquid crystal displays due to low cost and proven technology. This paper presents the integration of a flexible electrophoretic display on a smart meter and the possible use cases of such a display. The two main benefit of EPD displays are image retention which can be used as read without power feature and lower power consumption compared to LCD for smart meters. The smart meters available on the market use batteriesor super capacitors for the read without power feature and require each 20ms tenths of mA to displayinformation on the LCD.
