Smart Meters to Help Energy Efficiency and Create New Jobs


As reported in the Electronics Weekly Magazine, most of Europe’s electricity meters are expected to be replaced with new smart meters, introducing more precise measurement for electricity consumption and improved energy efficiency for households.

Electrical engineers and qualified electricians will benefit from the “technological switch” which is likely to boost employment across the electrical engineering sector.  New technologies in the electrical industry will require a skilful workforce to meet the increasing demand for efficient energy systems.

Steve Drumm, Marketing Development Manager at Omron Electronic Components for Europe, believes introducing new technologies in the energy industry will deliver benefits for consumers and help businesses make huge savings.

Manufacturers across Europe and the rest of the world are working towards improving key characteristics of switching power elements that manage the supply and measurement of electricity to consumers.

Smart meters are reported to require control relays which manage the supply of electricity. That way they can make significant savings towards the energy consumption of commercial and residential premises.

What do you think of the new electricity meters that will consume little or no electricity? Do you welcome the transition from old towards new meters and the boost to employment in the energy sector? Share your thoughts by leaving a comment below or adding your voice on our Facebook Page
