Smart Meter and Smart Grid Projects: Project Tracking,Regional Analysis, Vendor Selection Share, and Unit Shipments.
Total Smart Meter Shipments in 2013 reached 25.9 million meters in the first quarter and 25.5 million meters in the second quarter. The slight quarterly decline can be attributed to a lull in announcements for large new smart grid projects. Overall, total smart meter shipments for 3Q 2012-2Q 2013 amounted to 97.7 million meters.
China still accounts for the vast majority of global smart meter shipments, as the pace of deployments in the country continues to outpace that in other regions. The pace of meter shipments in North America, however, continued to slow down from the previous quarters. Many smart metering projects that had been fueled by U.S. federal stimulus money came to an end. As a result, there were few large-scale smart meter deployments announced in North America during the first half of 2013.
The Smart Grid Deployment Tracker provides an analysis of worldwide utility smart grid and smart meter programs. It tracks data related to global customer endpoints, meter manufacturers, advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) communications vendors, systems integrators, and meter data management (MDM) vendors. The report also includes a tactical examination of the technologies, timeframes, and vendor selections for AMI and smart grid utility deployments across the world, along with vendor selection share analysis for North America.
