India has been using smart meters for over three years, and the technology is still expanding. At first, people were sceptical about transitioning from conventional to smart meters. However, smart meter adoption has gained momentum with the help of our programmes and initiatives in several states. Here, Animesh Mishra, Chief General Manager, (Sales & CC/PR), EESL says that these efforts have enabled EESL to install over 31.49 lakh smart meters across Uttar Pradesh successfully, Delhi, Haryana, Bihar, Rajasthan, and Andaman.
“The National Smart Grid Mission (NSGM), the nodal body for smart metering, is best positioned to respond.” According to their website, over 5.2 million smart meters have already been placed across the country. “Over 1.1 million smart meters communicate over CyanConnode’s RF network, making it the largest RF player by far,” says Ratna Garapati, MD & CEO, CyanConnode.
CyanConnode Holdings plc (LON:CYAN) is a world leader in the design and development of Narrowband RF mesh networks that enable Omni Internet of Things (IoT) communications.
