Executive Summary
The European smart electricity meter market stands
to expand rapidly in the coming decade, with 133 millionto 145 million new meters on track to be installed by2020. That equates to a market of between $24 billionand $26 billion by that time. The top countries for this market will probably be those that haven’t yetimplemented smart metering on any meaningful scale:Germany, the UK and Poland. France and Spainare also set to make a signicant impact in the nextfew years, with announced projects already in theearly stages.
Driving the transition to smart meters are governmentinitiatives aimed at reducing carbon emissions andimproving energy efciency. The EU, for example, has seta goal of putting smart meters in 80 per cent of householdswithin 10 years. That is being interpreted differently by eachEuropean country – for example, the UK is aiming for 100per cent coverage over the same time period. As of 2010, the current installed base of smart metersin Europe is estimated at just under 53 million units. Withthe number of EU 27 households projected to rise to 225.2million, that leaves a very large market for smart meter installations based on current metering goals.If the UK reaches its target of 100 per cent coverage andthe rest of Europe achieves its 80 per cent goal, the EU27could see a total of 186 million households with smartmeters by 2020.
