Emerging markets to more than double in smart meter growth in 2013


Deployments of smart metering remain in the early stages throughout much of CEE. But, industry players are increasingly recognizing the importance of this strategic market.

Various trade reports highlight serious growth opportunities from within a region that boasts favourable market conditions including cheap labour costs, limited smart meter penetration levels to date and in some cases strong governmental support.

With ‘’emerging markets to more than double in smart meter growth in 2013’’, as according to one leading research paper, now is the perfect time to invest serious thought into what utilities across the region are doing to maximize their smart energy capacity. Can you be doing more?
