Market Dynamics

A smart metering system is an electronic device that can measure power fed into the grid or electricity drawn from the grid, delivering more data than traditional meters. Such a system can receive and transmit data for control, monitoring, and information purposes. With smart meters, end users can get a precise and frequent reading of their energy consumption and only be charged for electricity they consume. This ends back billing and inaccurate bills, which are now the greatest complaints from customers. Moreover, Smart meters enable consumers to adjust their energy use to changing energy prices throughout the day, allowing them to use more energy during times of lower prices and reduce their energy bills using a smart meter. There is a huge demand for advanced energy management due to rising investments in smart infrastructure projects, including smart buildings, smart cities, and smart farming. For instance, government of India needs an effective, dependable, and continuous power supply for its projects like "Make in India" and "Smart Cities." To address this, the Ministry of Power established the Indian Smart Grid Forum (ISGF), which collaborates closely with public, private, and research organizations to develop standards and policies for deployment of the "Smart Grid" and to ensure efficient and affordable power for all stakeholders. For instance, in November 2020, according to a European Commission report, about 51 million smart meters for gas and 225 million smart meters for electricity will be installed by 2024, with a prospective investment of €47 Billion. In addition, it is predicted that by 2024, 44% of European customers will have smart gas meters, and 77% of them will have smart electric meters.
