Across the globe, there has been an installation drive from the respective governments. The regulators develop the framework and policies to adopt smart energy meters. These are in turn implemented by utilities and thus smart energy meter installations have been growing around the world, which is in turn increasing usage of meter data management software. Countries such as the US and Canada have largely deployed smart energy meters due to the support of and regulations introduced by their governments. The US has allocated $3.4 billion in smart grid grants that would be utilized in installing smart energy meters and building a smart grid network within the country between 2010 and 2014. The Eastern European countries were early adopters of smart energy meters under the guidance of their respective governments. Furthermore, governments in some Asian and Western European countries have initiated pilot test programs to install smart energy meters.
According to the report, one of the major drivers is the reduction in electricity theft, facilitated by the installation of smart meters and usage of meter data management software. As meter data management facilitates better control and close monitoring of electricity used by its end-users, meter tampering can be avoided, which will in turn reduce the theft of electricity.
