Mutli Utility Smart Metering

Smart Meters are electronic devices enabling two-way communication and data transfer between customers and (utility) service providers, in Real Time.
Multi utility meters are a triple play solution for electricity/water/gas utilities, or a dual play mixture for any two these segments.


  • For utilities: theft and fraud reduction, elimination of wrong billing and meter reading costs.
  • For end users: accurate readings and peak consumption analysis to control and reduce energy consumption.

The Economics behind Smart Metering

Based on a 2014 EU Commission report on the deployment of Smart Metering:

  • Close to 200 million smart meters for electricity and 45 million for gas will be rolled out in the EU by 2020, representing a potential investment of €45 billion.
  • By 2020, it is expected that almost 72% of European consumers will have a smart meter for electricity, about 40% will have one for gas.
  • The cost of installing a smart meter in the EU is on average between €200 and €250.
  • On average, smart meters provide savings of €160 for gas and €309 for electricity per metering point (distributed amongst consumers, suppliers, distribution system operators, etc.) as well as an average energy saving of 3%.
