Utilities

"Smart meters will see massive growth"

Water, electricity & gas are critical resources and securing correct supply is thus a main focus for all nations. A big driver within the Utilities sector is regulatory push to for instance install smart meters and ensuring an adequate supply, which includes avoiding leaks and managing spikes in demand.

Avoiding energy theft, providing feedback to consumers and repair crews, lowering public safety risks, avoiding leaks & enhancing financial control are some of the major stakes within the Energy & Utilities sectors, which remotely connected solutions can help address.

Government green initiatives are pushing adoption, but there are some major hurdles SIGFOX will help to overcome. The logistical challenges of deploying hundreds of millions of smart meters are massive. The cost burden is also substantial and there is still a challenge with user acceptance which requires SIGFOX’s unique out-of-the-box and trouble-free operation.
