The Exponential Growth of Smart Electric Meters

Over the past few decades, the smart electric meter market share has seen astounding growth due to the ongoing digitalization of grid networks coupled with the growing deployment of distributed generation systems. Smart meter technology has surfaced as a workable choice for traditional meters, equipped with improved communication and modern features.

The smart electric meter market is expected to reach 10 billion by 2024. With energy efficiency being a compelling global tool, municipal policymakers have sought to enhance GHG emission-related laws, beneficial policies that would likely affect developments in the smart electric meter industry.

In recent years, the advent of smart metering technology has drawn widespread interest, with many government agencies investing millions in large-scale deployment programs to catalyze the development of a smart grid.

Increasing emphasis on replacing conventional meters along with adopting government policies for energy-efficient solutions will certainly boost the outlook for the smart electric meter industry. Studies predict that the demand for commercial smart electric meters between 2018-2024 is projected to report a growth of more than four percent.

Is It Time to Deploy an AMI System?

Automated metering infrastructure (AMI) technologies are effective solutions providing enhanced visibility and exceptional system control to water utilities. Meters are connected to a central software center, allowing the AMI system to provide two-way communication and offer hands-on access to data in real-time. As a result, a water utility team, equipped with this knowledge, can detect … Continued
