France and Italy are the first two European countries to decide to replace all mechanical gas meters with modern, smart gas meters. Key reasons to migrate to a smart-gas-meter network include: Reduces cost of billing with automatic reading, which means no manual labor to get consumption data from the actual meter to the utility back-end system Creates consumer awareness on their energy usage and allows them to better control and potentially reduce energy usage Provides better tools for leakage detection; non-technical loss (theft) When France and Italy decided to replace all gas meters with narrowband long-range gas meters, a very thorough pre-study and pilot project was conducted. The goal was to find, test, and select the best solution for long-range mete...
