Smart meters: market update and growth outlook


With a target to reduce AT&C losses to 15% and improve overall financial performance of DISCOMs, the Indian government is pushing for universal rollout of smart meters. However, penetration remains very low (less than 1%) despite several government initiatives. Concerted measures are required to streamline financing, tendering and installation process to achieve the latest 270 million installation target by 2023.

Recent government steps to centralise procurement and provide integrated financing solutions to DISCOMs have shown encouraging results. The market has attracted attention of leading technology providers and investors.
