Satellite-based Smart Meters Create Profitable Opportunities for Stakeholders

Players operating in the electricity meter market are scaling up satellite-based metered projects in the rural areas of India. Due to the growing demand for energy-efficient electricity meters in India, companies are investing in smart meters with satellite communication technology. These projects are serving as a win-win situation for various stakeholders, including consumers as well as distribution companies.

Smart electricity meters provide improved power quality, reduced outage durations, and flexible payment options. They also provide real-time information about electricity usage via a mobile app, so that consumers can keep a tab on any wastage, and streamline their electricity consumption to save money. These value-added features are gaining the attention of consumers across rural India and driving revenue to the electricity meter market.

Power distribution companies are also increasing their business of smart electricity meters, as these meters ensure accurate billing due to the absence of human intervention. Companies can also remotely discontinue power supply to consumers who do not pay their bills on time. Such innovative business models are generating profitable opportunities in the electricity meter market. For instance, Asian Development Bank – an international development finance institution, announced the launch of the satellite-based smart electricity meters project for households in Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh, with satellite communication technology installed by Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL) — the world’s largest energy services company run by the Government of India.

Blockchain and IoT Overcome Limitations of Advanced Metering Infrastructure

The smart electricity meter market is looking at high growth during the forecast period. However, certain limitations are influencing the large-scale deployment of smart metering systems in developing economies. Since some developing economies such as India have a vast geographical spread, manufacturers need to have meter variants as per each unique utility requirement. As smart electricity meters are driven by IT (Information Technology) systems, advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) is prone to malicious attacks. Also, communication technology has a flip side with the applicability and adaptability with AMI, such as.

As such, players functioning in the electricity meter market are investing in novel technologies are that more efficient, cost-effective, and support stability in communication networks. Also, manufacturers are adopting blockchain technology enabled with IoT-based (Internet of Things) deployments to tackle the issue of cyber-attacks on IT infrastructure and AMI.

  • According to Transparency Market Research’s latest report on the global electricity meter market for the historical period of 2014–2018 and forecast period of 2019–2027, the rising demand for and growing adoption of smart meters is expected to boost the global electricity meter market during the forecast period.
  • In terms of revenue, the global electricity meter market is estimated to reach a value of US$ ~8.5 Bn by 2019, expanding at a CAGR of ~6% throughout the forecast period.

Increasing Demand for Advanced Energy Data Monitoring Systems: A Key Driver

  • The global electricity meter market is expected to expand significantly during the forecast period, due to growth of the semiconductor assembly & test services (SATS) industry. Smart meters provide real-time consumption feedback to the utility-providing site, and consumers can also monitor real-time data of the power consumed by specific appliances. This consumption data can be monitored using a smartphone.
  • Electricity meter manufacturers offer a platform that comprises exclusive hardware and its integrated cloud-based energy-monitoring software. A benefit of these IoT-based monitoring systems is that, they can calculate multiple circuits together, in phase 1/2/3, with the capacity to withstand high voltages of up to 600 VAC and current of up to 6,000 A.
  • In terms of calculating the accurate consumption of electricity, advanced and smart electricity meters are more efficient than traditional meters. The energy produced in power plants is consumed by different companies in residential and commercial sectors. Smart meters help these consumers as well as utility providers check, track, and manage power production, supply, and usage. The U.K. Government and the Government of India have approved the deployment of advanced energy management systems, which also include smart electricity meters.

Reduction in Power Consumption with Advanced Smart Meters: A Key Driver

  • Smart electricity meters produce substantial volumes of data. They offer an opportunity to utilities to enhance end-customer service, lower cost, and improve energy efficiency. They help consumers reduce energy bills and save energy.
  • Advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) is an integrated system of smart meters, communication networks, and data management systems, which enables two-way communication between utilities and customers. The system carries out several important functions that were not possible previously or had to be performed manually. For example, the ability to automatically and remotely measure electricity usage, connect and disconnect service, detect tampering, identification and isolation of outages, and monitoring of voltage and supply in a particular area.
  • Due to rapid economic growth led by industrialization and globalization, energy consumption has been gradually increasing over the last few years. The generating capacity of electric power plants cannot fulfill this demand, and, as a result, the consumption of electric energy has become an issue. Smart meters help reduce electricity consumption. By using the data obtained from smart electricity meters, utilities and energy consumption management are able to forecast the demand and manage electricity grids in a better manner.

Inaccurate Electrical Billing: Major Challenge for Electricity Meter Market

  • Electricity meters can go wrong any time, just like any other electric device or appliances. This can be a reason for high electricity bills.
