New Meters Exclude Electricity Rates from Common Areas of Building

The allocation of energy costs is often more precise and better documented with electric sub-meters. However, in many cases, these individual meters do not eliminate the need for a meter in common areas of a building such as corridors, vestibules, basement, and underground parking. Hence, Hydro-Québec’s meters are gaining visibility as energy efficient solutions that exclude the electricity rate of common areas.

The electric sub-meter market is projected to cross the value mark of US$ 7.7 Bn by the end of 2030. The Multilin EPM 4600 Multi-feed Power and Energy Meter by tech giant General Electric (GE) is gaining recognition for quickly, accurately, and centrally measuring power and energy usage in specific areas to help reduce operating expenses.

Analysts’ Viewpoint

Government initiatives to launch rural electrification and installation of digital sub-meters are creating revenue opportunities for companies post the COVID-19 pandemic. The electric sub-meter market is slated to register a modest CAGR of ~4% during the forecast period. This is evident with the example of tenant owners who find it tedious to decentralize electro-mechanical systems by choosing separate equipment such as water heater & AC for each tenant. Hence, companies including Schneider Electric are making it possible to connect multiple sub-meter displays with its single Enercept meter. As such, BMS and aM&T systems are being combined with electric sub-meters to provide clear visualization of electricity consumption of across assets and buildings.
