Energy Meters Become Smarter

The Indian energy meter market is evolving continuously with technology up-gradation taking place at a very fast pace. Earlier energy meters did not have the intelligence to control the consumer load based on predefined parameters like over voltage/current, abnormal frequency, in case of meter tempering or low credit etc.

However, today, smart energy meters come with inbuilt technology that helps them to communicate on a real time basis with the central station. They also help consumers to monitor their hourly, daily, weekly and monthly consumption of power.

Future Prospects and Latest Trends in Energy Meters Market in India

Extensive power capacity augmentation and improvement of electrical grid networks are imperative to support the growth of energy meter market in India. The electricity meters market in India is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.3 per cent by 2015.

All the energy meters in the Indian market are manufactured locally. Import and export volumes are also negligible, although few companies do small level exports and the industry caters to the unique end-user requirements of distribution companies.

The Restructured Accelerated Power Development and Reform Program (R-APDRP) implemented by the government endeavours to implement efficient energy metering and demonstrate sustained loss reduction.
