Worldwide smart meter shipments to peak in 2018, Navigant forecasts

The smart electric meter market has entered a slow growth phase and worldwide shipments of smart meters will peak in 2018, at 131 million annually, before slowing to 114 million by 2022, according to Navigant Research in a new report. Deployments of new smart meters have declined in North America, following several years of large scale rollouts bolstered by U.S. federal stimulus funding. In other regions, previously announced large scale smart metering programs have been delayed in the near term, particularly in the United Kingdom and [...]

More investment needed for smart metering in Europe

More investment needed for smart metering in Europe

Around €6 billion has been invested in smart grid projects in Europe, including 281 smart grid R&D projects and 90 smart metering pilots and rollouts, but more investment is needed particularly in smart metering, with an estimated €50 billion required for 250 million smart meters by 2020. Further some €480 billion is required to upgrade the rest of the system by 2030. These figures were presented by Jan Panek from the European Commission’s Energy Directorate at the European Smart Metering Industry Group (ESMIG) and European [...]

Smart Grid Technology Market Will Reach $73 Billion in Annual Revenue by 2020

Smart Grid Technology Market Will Reach $73 Billion in Annual Revenue by 2020

Although the market for smart grid technologies is already established, representing more than $33 billion in revenue in 2012, it has grown with little contribution from a number of countries with populations greater than 100 million, and with almost no activity in Africa, with its population of 1 billion. This suggests that the market is likely to continue robust growth for the foreseeable future. According to a recent report from Navigant Research, the market for smart grid technologies will reach $73 billion in annual revenue by the end [...]

South America Smart Grid Market: $49.8bn by 2023

South America Smart Grid Market: $49.8bn by 2023

Two-thirds of electricity generation in South America comes from renewable hydropower, giving it one of the cleanest power sectors in the world. However, there are major problems with electric transmission and distribution infrastructure. A distribution loss rate of 15.5% is the highest in the world due to pervasive electricity theft and power outages are a continuing problem. As a result, an increasing share of electricity infrastructure spending is being allocated to smart grid investments that can help solve the numerous problems plaguing [...]
