Smart metering report written by James Moar and Steffen Sorrell from Kaleido Intelligence.
“Surprisingly, the biggest blocker in decarbonising the electric grid is the lack of connectivity and shared standards, not the lack of new renewable energy resources.”
Smart metering of water, gas and electricity are to play a vital role in how utilities and energy grid players modernise, enhance sustainability and improve customer service.
The key to achieving these outcomes boils down to timely, accurate and secure data to meet the demand for energy efficiently.
eSIMs can provide a large number of benefits to the smart metering industry, bringing operational efficiencies to the energy grid, as well as giving utility companies and meter providers the tools they need to simplify both service provisioning and meter roll-out.
However, the nature of smart meter deployments presents challenges that will require a change in many business models, which providers need to be prepared for to make the best use of this technology.
