SENSE AND GUIDEHOUSE INSIGHTS RELEASE NEW REPORT DETAILING HOW ENHANCED INSIDE-THE-METER INTELLIGENCE CAN BENEFIT CONSUMERS
Report Delivers Insights on Current State of Next-Gen Smart Meter Market, Future Growth Prospects
65 million US Smart Meters Set for Replacement in Next Five Years
CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Aug. 31, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Sense announced the release of a new whitepaper produced by Guidehouse Insights that explores the emerging market for next-generation smart meters and how advanced analytics and artificial intelligence (AI) will drive a transformation in home energy use and grid intelligence. The whitepaper provides insight into the history of smart metering, the evolution of next-generation smart meters into edge-based computing devices, and how next-generation smart meters can enhance utilities' energy efficiency and demand response programs. A copy of the report can be found here.
The report forecasts that global markets will experience a surge in smart meter upgrade and replacement projects throughout the next decade, and provides an in-depth look into how meter lifetimes vary across various utilities in North America and Western Europe.
"In the US alone, an estimated 65 million smart meters will need to be replaced by the end of 2027. This dovetails with ambitious energy efficiency and electrification goals codified by the Inflation Reduction Act," said Michael Kelly, Senior Research Analyst & Managing Consultant at Guidehouse. "Now is the time for utility decision-makers to make smart meter decisions that will have a real impact on their programs for addressing climate change."
"As tilities across the country evaluate next-generation smart meter capabilities, it is imperative they understand the potential of advanced inside-the-meter intelligence and how it can support energy efficiency and demand response priorities," said Mike Phillips, CEO of Sense. "Sophisticated next-generation smart meters enabled with technology like Sense have the potential to transform the utility-consumer paradigm by providing new capabilities around device recognition, proactive notifications, and a real-time experience, all of which will enable everyday consumers to have more insight and control into their home energy use."
