“The U.S. smart meter market still remains relatively hot and represents a strong market opportunity for smart meter and advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) vendors. Although the pace of installations will taper off due to the completion of Smart Grid Investment Grant projects, about 60% of all U.S. electric meters will not have a smart meter by the end of 2013.” stated Jason Rodriguez, CEO of Zpryme. “Thus, utilities will further continue to deploy smart meters as part of larger grid modernization projects.”
