Minimising Electricity Losses Creates a Strong Business Case for Smart Metering in Turkey
This is a research service on the Turkish electricity meters market. The study provides forecasts of unit shipment and associated revenues. The study covers a forecast period from 2016 to 2020 and provides a comprehensive overview from 2014 to 2020 for important steps regarding electricity meter rollouts. Supportive regulations is the biggest driver behind electricity investment in Turkey. However, Turkey has not taken significant steps to push smart meter rollouts. In specific regions, the reduction of non-technical losses and improving billing accuracy are key factors for the implementation of smart meters. Regarding communication technologies in electricity meters, although GSM remains the dominant communication technology for installation in terms of volume, the expectation is that the focus will be on Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) and Radio Frequency (RF) technologies.
The aim of this research is to identify the volume and the value of the electricity meter market in Turkey and to predict potential growth by 2020 in terms of metering technologies.
Electricity meters have been gradually transforming from mechanical meters to electronic meters. Utilities' main focus is to implement automatic meter reading systems and advanced metering infrastructure to control and monitor the consumption and loss in their regions. These implementations are extended gradually through pilot projects rather than large-scale rollouts. Utilities with high loss and theft ratio prioritize smart meter projects.
