Global AMI Tracker 2Q17

Smart Meter Projects: Project Tracking, Regional Analysis, and Market Shares

Smart meters could be labeled as the original smart grid device. More than a decade after communicating electric meters were deployed, the market for advanced metering infrastructure (AMI, or smart meters) remains strong and growing. Since the release of Navigant Research’s Global AMI Tracker in 4Q 2016, the North American market has seen a handful of new project announcements (Clay Electric, Chugach Electric Association, and City of Pasadena) and some notable project updates (Hawaiian Electric). Outside of the United States, Canada is seeing a lull in project activity, as most of the country’s major utilities have reached near full penetration of their meter fleets.

In Europe, smart electric meter activity remains high as multiple national rollouts continue in varying stages of deployment. Notably, new legislation has been enacted in Germany that will finally kick-start the country’s partial smart meter rollout. The Asia Pacific market remains fragmented, though high volume deployments continue across China and Japan as these countries’ utilities continue their push toward near nationwide coverage. In Latin America, only a select few countries are pursuing meaningful deployments. The Middle East & Africa has also been slow to adopt AMI, but this is changing somewhat in the Middle East since countries like Kuwait, Lebanon, and the United Arab Emirates have announced large-scale projects.

This Navigant Research report provides an analysis of global utility smart meter projects. It tracks data related to global customer endpoints, meter manufacturers, AMI communications vendors, systems integrators, and meter data management (MDM) vendors. The report also includes an examination of the technologies, timeframes, and vendor selections for AMI deployments around the world, along with vendor selection share analysis for North America.

Key Questions Addressed:
  • What are the key smart meter projects around the world?
  • Which utilities are actively engaged in smart meter deployments on a worldwide basis?
  • Which technologies have various utilities selected for their deployment projects?
  • What types of smart meter-related vendors are working with specific utilities?
  • What are the vendor selection shares of these companies in North America?
Who needs this report?
