Smart metering in 2020 and beyond – what’s next?

With renewable generation on the rise, the impact of energy efficiency programmes on power consumption and society’s drive towards electric vehicles, traditional utilities have been forced to reconsider their future strategies as the energy sector slowly embraces transformation.

Utilities planning for new smart grid projects and ambitious rollouts in the 2020s now have a wide range of increasingly sophisticated wireless technologies to choose from as networking platforms.

For almost two decades, smart meters have become widely regarded as the cornerstone for future smart grids and with penetration of global markets increasing year on year, the smart metering race is on.

This new analyst report by Berg Insight explores the current state of play in Smart Electricity Metering.
