Smart Applications through Smart Meters and Grids will provide various benefits and new applications to its customers, including automatic and detailed reading (both current and historical). The data obtained through these readings will be available to customers to monitor actual consumption for a specific period of time, and this will contribute towards finding solutions to rationalise the consumption of electricity and water resources.
The smart meters will be able to send accumulated data via sophisticated means of communication, while at the same time providing a full history of consumption and consumption processes. DEWA has been successful in implementing the first phase of the initiative, by installing 200,000 smart meters by January 2016, and expects to have installed the remaining by 2020, covering the whole Emirate of Dubai, and replacing all mechanical and electromechanical meters.
