Definition and Benefits:

A smart meter is an electronic device that provides businesses and households with a digital way to measure water, gas, and electricity consumption in hourly or fewer intervals and communicates detailed insights to the utility at least once a day for monitoring and billing. Most notably, it provides utility readings in a much faster, more precise manner.


Traditional meters just measure overall consumption and provide no further breakdown of data; smart meters, on the other hand, measure site-specific information, allowing utilities to charge varying rates for consumption depending on the time of day and season.



  • Smart meters provide near-real-time data on resources consumed.
  • Smart meters will eliminate predicted billing, allowing consumers to better budget by only being charged for the resource actually used.
  • Smart meters will enable switching suppliers easier and faster in the future, making it easy to find the best pricing.
  • Eliminates supplying meter readings by sending automated readings directly to the energy supplier, saving business time for other tasks.
  • Quick Installations (one hour for the gas meter and one hour for the electricity meter)
  • Smart meters can be set up to run in either a prepayment or credit mode.



  • Global economy slowdown due to Covid-19 and natural calamities.
  • Growing concerns of privacy for customers
  • Lack of government support in some countries.
  • Declining revenues of utilities impacting utility operating models and capital expenditure.


Recent Trends & Developments:

  • In the United Kingdom, as part of a nationwide upgrade to the energy system, Smart meters are being installed by every energy supplier, such as ‘bulb’ for free.
  • In August 2020, Badger Meter has announced the availability of a new metering-as-a-service programme that includes end-to-end advanced metering deployments.
  • In August 2021, Landis+Gyr has signed a five-year deal with Louisville Gas and Electric Company (LG&E) and Kentucky Utilities Company (KU) for the provision of smart meters and smart grid infrastructure and technology that includes 930,000 advanced electricity meters and 300,000 gas modules
