The adoption of smart electricity metering is happening fast in India, driven in large part by widespread power theft and inefficiencies in the country’s energy infrastructure. According to some studies, as much as 20 percent of the electricity generated in India is stolen. And besides the massive economic consequences, illegally tapping into a community power supply is an exceedingly dangerous way to keep the lights on. As a result, India’s government launched the Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) program in 2015 with the purpose of modernizing the country’s energy grid. It’s an ambitious plan with a goal of replacing 250 million conventional electricity meters with smart meters.
