Dublin, April 12, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Smart Electricity Meters - Global Market Trajectory & Analytics" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering. Energy Wastage is Taking its Toll on the Environment. Smart Meters Being the Need of the Hour Will Reach $16.4 Billion by 2027The global market for Smart Electricity Meters is expected to reach US$ 16.4 billion by the year 2027, trailing a post COVID-19 CAGR of 6.7% over the analysis period 2020 through 2027. Global carbon emissions are rising each year. The energy industry accounts for a sizable share of CO2 emissions highlighting the carbon intensity of electricity generation. Coal remains the worst polluting generating over 1,200 of CO2 per kWh. Over 60% of energy produced is wasted in transmission & consumption. Smart electricity meters are poised to witness robust adoption given their role in energy conservation & reducing wastages. Among the many benefits of smart meters are monitoring of electric system in real time & provision of responsive data for balancing electric loads; reduction of waste by forecasting energy demand more efficiently. A smart meter is an electronic device capable of monitoring usage of utility services, and share the data with utility providers. Using two way communication, smart meter makes records data at the usage point and transmits the information gathered back to the utility companies. The advanced metering infrastructure holds several merits over conventional metering and supports bi-directional communication. Smart meters are increasingly replacing traditional electric meters, mainly in developed countries, and enabling power system to undergo notable transformation in terms of efficiency and reliability. These devices provide utilities with the opportunity to exploit data to ensure efficient use of energy, reduce wastage, and minimize human intervention. Smart metering devices in homes deliver accurate readings and eliminate incorrect billing or irregularities. By monitoring gas, water or electricity consumption, these devices allow users to reduce consumption and save on utility bills.Smart meters represent a revolutionary technology for utility companies that allow them to ensure efficient transmission and distribution while monitoring energy usage and efficiency. These meters integrate three primary components that include an electricity meter, processing unit and communication module. While the electricity meter measures power consumption and translates the readings into usable data, the processing unit processes and stores the data. In addition, the processing unit controls the electricity meter and the communication module. The communication module, usually found integrated into the smart meters or installed in external slots, facilitates the communication of meter data with the utility and the customer. Among the three components, the meter part is highly regulated one and in most cases needs to conform to a set of standards placed by regulatory authorities. The technology has gained extensive adoption among utilities and is receiving support from various countries. Governments are investing in smart metering infrastructure to gravitate towards smart grids and accommodate renewable energy. Smart meters technology is poised to experience large-scale installations in North America, Europe and Asia-Pacific, with the latter holding a key role in driving global adoption of smart meters. The increasing adoption of smart meters is attributed to their various benefits such as energy usage monitoring, energy saving, reduction in energy wastage, tab on power thefts and reduction in carbon emissions. Smart meters are increasingly replacing conventional meters and leading to notable transition towards digital technologies. These devices allow two-way communication to transmit data to utility companies for billing, monitoring and other purposes to ensure seamless supply of electricity, water or gas to consumers. Smart metering allows companies to deal with electricity theft, which results in heavy losses of around $90 billion annually. The technology has witnessed an impressive investment of around US$ 62 billion for associated infrastructure. These endeavors are anticipated to further drive adoption of smart meters in both developed and developing regions. Key Topics Covered: I. METHODOLOGYII. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY1.

(Bloomberg) -- British cybersecurity company Darktrace Plc announced plans for an initial public offering in London, marking the first major company to plan a listing on the exchange after Deliveroo Holdings Plc flopped in its market debut.The IPO is expected to value the company at about $3 billion to $4 billion, a person familiar with the matter said. A representative for the company declined to comment on valuation ahead of the shares pricing. Darktrace and shareholders plan to sell at least 20% of the company’s equity, and the stock will trade on the London Stock Exchange’s premium market and be eligible for FTSE’s benchmark stock indexes, the company said in a statement Monday.Unlike Deliveroo, Darktrace won’t offer a dual-class share structure and will be a more traditional listing for the London market, which may reassure some fund managers. The company will sell new shares to fund product development, and some existing investors also will offer stock, Darktrace said.“This is a very different technology company,” Chief Executive Officer Poppy Gustafsson said in an interview. “I love Deliveroo. I think it’s great. I can get my favorite burrito delivered on a bicycle, but this is different.”Read More: Deliveroo Flop Deals Blow to U.K. Post-Brexit Tech AmbitionsDarktrace has been putting the pieces in place since at least late 2019 for a public offering. The company was founded in 2013 by veterans of U.S. and British intelligence agencies and mathematicians from the University of Cambridge. Its technology uses artificial intelligence to learn how organizations work and employees communicate to detect irregularities and wall off cyberattacks to prevent them from spreading.The company plans to use the funds to add to its 1,500 employees, with particular emphasis on its research and development center in Cambridge, Gustafsson said. Darktrace lost $28.7 million on revenue of $199 million for the 12 months ended in June 2020. The company may reach profitability “in the short term,” though growth is the priority for now, she said.IPO proceeds in London total $9.9 billion this year, according to data compiled by Bloomberg, on par with 2019 and closing in on the 2020 total of $11.6 billion. Deliveroo, which raised 1.5 billion pounds ($2.1 billion) in its listing March 31, has slumped 35% since it began trading, hit by investor concerns about its gig-economy business model and its dual-class share structure.Darktrace is one of the companies that received early funding and advice from British entrepreneur Mike Lynch’s Invoke Capital. Lynch, the founder of Autonomy Corp., is awaiting a verdict on a trial involving Autonomy’s more-than $10 billion sale to Hewlett-Packard Co. a decade ago. HP wrote down the vast majority of the deal in 2012 and has alleged that Lynch and his chief financial officer orchestrated an accounting fraud to make Autonomy more attractive in the sale, which both men have denied.Read More: A Long Legal War Over a $10 Billion Takeover Heads to a CloseLynch serves on Darktrace’s science and technology committee. A number of its executives also have Autonomy pedigree, including Chief Executive Officer and Chief Strategy Officer Nicole Eagan.Invoke is represented on Darktrace’s nine-member board by Phil Pearson, Vanessa Colomar and Andrew Kanter. A number of members also have ties to other Invoke-backed companies, including newly appointed Chairman Gordon Hurst, who’s also on the board of fraud-detection business Featurespace.Jefferies International Ltd., Joh. Berenberg, Gossler & Co. KG and KKR Capital Markets Partners LLP will arrange the sale if it goes ahead, with Needham & Co. and Piper Sandler & Co. as joint bookrunners.(Updates with CEO comment in fourth paragraph.)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.
