L.E.K. Consulting prepared a comprehensive smart metering study covering 19 countries across the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), Europe and Australasia geographies to address key questions on likely volume and value demand of smart metering during a 10-year forecast. The report examines pivotal industry questions including:
- What is fundamentally driving (or constraining) smart meter adoption by country, by utility (electricity, gas and water) and segment (residential, commercial and industrial)?
- How “smart” will the meters really be and what functionalities will likely be included?
- Who are the main players in the global smart metering market and what are their relative shares?
- During the next 10 years how is market volume and value likely to evolve by country, utility and segment?
