Qatar Transitioning to Smart Meters
 

Doha, Qatar, August 11, 2015: In an endeavor to offer better energy management solutions to consumers, Qatar General Electricity & Water Corporation (KAHRAMAA) has leveraged the collaborative understanding of Information Technology and the power sector to launch its smart meter project. With decisive implementation plans to make the country a pioneer in smart energy management, KAHRAMAA intends to cover the complete geographical rollout of the smart meter project across the city by 2016. Smart meter deployment provides real-time information on the energy, water or natural gas consumption of a building or home.

The country’s steady movement towards an overall smart energy approach is supported by the installation of smart grid projects and its related technologies such as smart meter that benefits consumers and energy providers in ways more than one. Additionally, it enables KAHRAMAA to optimize energy consumption and promote energy efficiency.

“By adding the intelligence of IT to power distribution, KAHRAMAA aims to attain sustainable development and significantly improve the power infrastructure in the country. Encompassing a broad portfolio of technologies, smart grids ensure optimized usage of energy usage and support increased penetration of renewable energy. With the state of Qatar witnessing rapid growth in the power sector, the government has undertaken massive initiatives to achieve its noble vision of attaining a significant increase in renewables and energy efficiency,” opined, Mr. Brad Hariharan, Regional Director, Expotrade Middle East.

In the Middle East, the rate of adoption of smart metering has been on a steady growth trajectory and this demand will continue to increase exponentially in the coming years. Government-led initiatives and introduction of regulatory frameworks coupled with the adoption of latest technology in the utilities segment have driven the deployment of smart grids and smart meters in the region. Large international private players have played a crucial role in developing end-to-end solutions to build a smart energy infrastructure in the GCC region.

Installing a smart meter helps keep a check on power distribution, monitors consumer usage and communicates revenue unit of energy data in real-time between any two-distribution points. According to an industry study, smart metering market will reach 16.1 million units by 2022 and 86% of homes and businesses in the Gulf countries are expected to have smart meters by the same year.
