Saudi Arabia is evolving in smart construction branch and water industries and there will be myriad ways to capitalize on making the country more sustainable. The country still burns its excess oil, much of it going to power electricity. However, the oil future isn't sustainable. Water being a scarce resource, Saudi Arabia is investing big in desalination plants and heavily subsidizing tap water. Scarcity of water is a perennial problem in the kingdom. Saudi Arabia has the largest single desalination program in the world, which meets most domestic and industrial needs. Underwater aquifers provide a limited amount of potable water, and a great deal of energy has been committed to constructing dams for water storage and to developing water-recycling plants.

According to the report title "Saudi Arabia Smart Meter Market Overview, 2027", published by Bonafide research, the smart meter market in Saudi Arabia is expected to grow over 7% during the forecast period ending 2027. Saudi Arabia is the largest market for smart meters in MEA region that grew by 37% historically and further too expected to grow rapidly over the forecast period. The smart metering started in Middle Eastern countries much later than other countries of the world as a result of which smart electric meters are installed at present to the extent of 80%. Smart water meters are expected to be rapidly adapted in the residential sector over the forecast period due to various initiatives by the SMC. The various new technological evolvements is changing the IoT to deploy AMI meters across the country. The commercial and residential users form the major users of these smart meters while industrial adoption is still in nascent stage.

SMP (Smart Metering Project) is the project implemented by the Saudi government to reach the goal of energy conservation and emission reduction under "Vision 2030". It is one of the biggest smart meter projects in the world with one time deployment of 10 million smart meters in 15 months. It is also the world's first smart meter project with the largest deployment of two advanced communication solutions of which 4 million meters, equivalent to 40 percent of them were built in Saudi Arabia from locally manufactured components. SMP also enables the customer to examine and monitor their consumption in almost real time with granular detail and optimize and trim their consumption patterns for maximum efficiency.

Saudi Meters Company (SMC) is the first water meters manufacturer in the Gulf Region located in the 2nd Industrial City in Riyadh. SMC manufactures all types of mechanical water meters (Dry Multi-Jet, Semi Dry Multi-Jet, Wet Multi-Jet).In 2017, SMC signed an industrial agreement with Diehl Metering, a world renowned German manufacturer of Smart Water Meters, to localize the manufacturing of Smart Water Meters (Hydrus) in Saudi Arabia. This technology allows the tracking of accurate consumption of water and Automatic Meter Reading (AMR) thereby helping in the implementation of an ideal billing management system as per recent market trends. Furthermore, this innovation is also in line with the Saudi government's Vision 2030 of monitoring and reducing wasteful water consumption.

Al Bustan chose a complete smart metering solution with integrated water, cooling and electricity meters. A complete IP based smart metering system where each meter was connected to the IP switch in each home and then through the site fibre network to the control centre. It provided the customer with the right software with a simple user interface to collect and manage all customer information and meter data needed for statistical analysis programmes and data export to billing systems. MULTICAL 602 for cooling metering, MULTICAL 62 for water meters and Kamstrup 382 for electricity metering met the technical requirements and proved to bring significantly economic and operational benefits.

The Smart Water meter segment is expected to grow at a higher CAGR over the forecast period owing to the increasing demand for smart water meters to monitor and optimize water consumption, followed by the increasing requirement for accurate billing. The numerous ongoing projects such as the development of smart cities such as Neom, Red Sea project, Amaala, Jean Nouvel's Sharaan resort in Al-Ula and Qiddiya entertainment city, will drastically increase the demand for water, thereby boosting the demand for smart water meters in this region.

Alfanar has three types of smart meters for SEC that complies with highest standards and reliability.

First is ZIV-PLC type that complies with SEC specifications 40-SDMS-02B, Rev.08 with built-in breaks, 3 phase 4 wires system, 400 Volt network, with frequency of 60Hz. It has direct current measurement up to 100 A and short circuit withstand current up to 25 kA. It can measure real time consumptions equipped with communications module PLC PRIME 1.4 FCC that is built in. The second one is ZIV with Narrow band IoT type that has similar specifications. The third one is with Alfanar Holly Narrow IoT type. It has other companies smart meters too that are deployed across the country. The smart meters and their technological and communication systems are resistant to the various climatic conditions, and are in conformity with the best local and international technical standards and specifications

At the beginning of 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic around the world with so many countries into emergency and locked down, the supply of raw materials for smart meters was seriously insufficient. Though confronted with multiple difficulties, the companies immediately mobilized the entire company by virtue of strong supply chain system and resource integration capabilities, and overcame difficulties and expanded production capacity. Under the premise of personnel safety, they completed procurement, production, shipment, routine test and delivery of 2.43 million smart meters in 9 months, which gained high praise from customers. Despite the operational challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, Saudi Electricity Company managed to replace 10 million analogue meters across all its regions of service.
