Commenting on the same Mr. Jitendra Kumar Agarwal, Joint Managing Director, Genus Power Infrastructure said, "We are delighted to have been recognized, for our performance in the field of Smart Electricity Meters. This award is a testament to our skill, ingenuity, and vision to lead this revolution in the smart metering sector.
Smart meters have potential benefits for utility companies and their customers alike. Consumers can learn about their own energy usage patterns and consider altering their behavior so as to gain from off-peak tariffs. And utilities businesses gain not only from reduced AT&C losses but also increased knowledge and control. The greater the level of real-time information that can be gathered, the better prepared utilities companies can be to respond rapidly to peaks and troughs in demand.
Global penetration of smart meters is likely to rise from 41% in 2019 to 59% by 2028, driven by on-going utility investment in grid intelligence, security and edge computing technologies. Indian penetration of smart meters is likely to grow exponentially as a lot of thrust is coming from the central government for deployment of smart meters across India in order to lower the AT&C losses, improve billing efficiencies, reduce DISCOMs' financial woes, enhance consumer convenience and rationalize power consumption.
We provide end-to-end metering solutions to clients with metering communication, services and solutions. We plan to create inroads, in areas where we have robust avenues of earning recurring revenue in form of facility management system (FMS), providing our domain-related software to clients etc."
