METERING IN INDIA

  • The union government’sbudget announcement to replace all the conventional electricity meters with smart prepaid meters in next the three yearsis expected to create a demand for close to 300 million smart meters in the coming years.
  • Although similar targetswere set earlier as well, the fresh reinforcement is likely to speed up the pace of deployment. With discom AT&C losses at over 18 per cent (as of 2018-19), smart prepaid meters are expected to significantly improve the segment’s viability withimproved billing and collection efficiency, discoms’ cash flow and revenue, and implementation of time-of-day (ToD) tariffs,among other things.
  • Government schemes have been key drivers of smart meter deployment in the last couple of years. However, progress remains less than desired. Under Ujwal DISCOM Assurance Yojana (UDAY), only 6 per cent of the target has been achieved so far.Smart meters have also been installed under the National Smart Grid Mission’s pilot projects (157,000) and Integrated Power Development Scheme (98,000).
  • Meanwhile, under the Smart Meter National Programme (SMNP) being implemented by Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL) 250 million smart meters are envisaged to be installed across states. EESL is implementing its proven model of bulk procurement, demand aggregation and monetisation of savings.So far, EESL has issued three tenders for the procurement of 5 million smart meters each, and has installed close of 1 millionmeters.
  • Robust and efficient meter communication technologieswill be a vital component of the smart metering infrastructure. It is essential for remote monitoring of the utility’s infrastructure, and bi-directional communicationsystem. Power line communication (PLC), general packet radio service (GPRS) and radio frequency (RF) mesh communication are some of the widely deployed communication technologies, which are being considered by utilities in India.
  • Similarly, given that smart metersalso generate huge amount of data, meter data management system which help in data acquisition and its storage will be of critical important to utilities. This would be useful for undertaking demand response, detecting meter tampering, managing outages,and ensuring theft protection by the utilities.
  • Another emerging area of opportunity is the net metering segment. With the rapid expansion of solar rooftop system, allowing bi-directional power supply has become essential which requires a net meter for energy accounting purposes.Further, with this, peer-to-peer trading through technologies such as blockchain is expected to witness an uptake.
  • While the roll-out plans in the next few years are ambitious, interoperability issues, meter tampering and theft, cyber security threats, and technology obsolescence are some challenges that utilities will need to address as they scale deployment.
  • The mission of this conference is to provide a platform for key stakeholders to discuss the metering needs and requirements as well as opportunities in India. The conference will enable knowledge sharing in the area of emerging technology solutions for communication systems, meter design and testing, blockchain, and data acquisition and management. It will highlight the key issues and challenges facing the segment, and the solutions thereof. The conference will also showcase the best practices of key utilities.
