Report Description

Governments around the world are implementing policies to promote renewable energy sources and smart metering solutions to decrease and keep a track on overall energy consumption. Owing to increased government spending and digitalization of energy sector market for smart metering solutions including smart gas meter is expected to grow at a rapid pace in the coming few years. Data collected by smart gas meter is used to monitor the behavior of residential consumers. According to US EIA and European Union, continuous tracking of utility consumption by smart gas meters can expose other information about residential consumers, such as the use of household appliances and house-work activities. Furthermore, Smart gas meters can also be used as an infrastructure for mass surveillance. In August 2020, Apator SA’s subsidiary Apator Metrix SA and George Wilson Industries Ltd. Partnered with Flonidan A/S (Denmark) to supply gas meters for the UK market for the period 2020-2025. Further, in the same year, Landis+Gyr partnered with Hongkong Electric Co., Ltd. (HK Electric) to offer AMI to support Hong Kong’s transformation into a smart city. Under the contract the company would deploy Landis+Gyr’s Gridstream solution platform comprising Landis+Gyr smart meters, communications infrastructure, head-end system, and meter data management system.
