Aggregate Technical And Commercial losses are considered to be an Achilles heel of Indias power sector. Problems in power distribution companies have accentuated over the years, mainly in the form of inadequate metering and data collection systems in place.
To cut carbon footprint and billing exercise
Tata Power is the first Indian power utility to launch the Automated Demand Response (ADR) project with smart meters in Delhi last year. It is one of the first projects in the world where ADR and AMI (Advanced Metering Infrastructure for Smart Meters) are conceptualised together.
A smart meter is an electronic device that records consumption of electric energy in intervals of an hour or less and communicates that information at least daily back to the utility for monitoring and billing. Smart meters enable two-way communication between the meter and the central system.
The growth is largely dependent on government organisations
The manufacturers have developed different types of single and three phase electronic meters over the years like, basic electronic meter with optical port/ IrDa port, meter with RF/zigbee communication, which can communicate consumption data
