The growing demand of energy, the capacity limitations of energy management, one-way communication, the need of an interoperability of the different standards, the security of the communication and the greenhouse gas emissions, leads to emerge a new infrastructure grid: Smart Grid. Smart Meters are one of the proposed solutions for the Smart Grid. In this paper, an AMR solution which provides enhanced end-to-end application. It is based on an energy meter with low-power microcontroller MSP430FE423A and the Power Line Communication standards. The microcontroller includes an energy metering module ESP430CEl. The aim of this work is to realize a real time pricing thanks to the proposed communication infrastructure. This solution is with great interest in economical and low carbon society point of view.
