SummaryA lack of demand from utilities and consumers for smart grid technologies could have resulted in a premature end to smart grids had governments not taken up certain initiatives. The governments of some Central and Eastern European (CEE) nations are trying to drive the market by framing policies and regulations that make it mandatory for utilities to roll out smart grid systems. Although most CEE nations have no official plans for a nationwide rollout, governments are slowly increasing emphasis on energy efficiency in all sectors. This is leading to the growth of Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI), the first step towards smart grid establishment. The CEE nations in question are hoping to improve the traditional power grid infrastructure and reduce carbon emissions through the use of renewable resources, and smart grid technologies combined with the significant legislative push will help them to achieve their goal.Scope- Market trend for the implementation of AMI technology and systems in the Central and Eastern European (CEE) nations- Smart grid rollout scenario in CEE nations- Technological advancements in the smart meter communication technologies - Key vendors in the CEE smart metering technolgy landscapeReasons to buy- Identify key growth and investment opportunities in the market for smart metering technology in CEE nations - Gain insight on the CEE smart grid communication technologies market development trends- Develop strategies for market penetration- Facilitate decision-making based on insights on the smart metering industry developments
