About The Conference

The 10th edition of Metering India organized by the Energy Meter Division brings together experts for discussions on the latest advancements in energy metering. It's a symposium to share knowledge, network, and develop business for a sustainable energy future. This biennial event, organized in collaboration with metering companies and various stakeholders in the electrical ecosystem, for knowledge sharing, networking, and business development. Metering India has a two-decade track record of transforming the Indian energy landscape. Leading experts convene at Metering India to tackle industry challenges and explore new technologies for a more efficient and reliable power grid. Since 2004, more than 4000 delegates representing diversified fraternity of power sector have participated in “Metering India” seminars. Join us for a dynamic exploration of the latest advancements in energy metering.

Empowered by evolving communication technologies, metering has transitioned from its conventional role, to unleashing benefits, from granular analytics and dynamic pricing to demand response, load curtailment, and enhanced revenue protection and upcoming use cases in electricity distribution. This unlocks a spectrum of data-driven revolution positions metering as a cornerstone of a smarter, more sustainable energy future empowering consumers and stakeholders to better manage the transitioning energy needs.

The "Metering India" conference, once focused on traditional themes like revenue management and IT, undergoes a bold transformation. Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) are now center stage, rewriting the script for the energy sector. Smart devices empowered by sophisticated algorithms dismantle the "business as Personalized consumer insights” empower individuals with actionable advice to reduce their carbon footprint. This is just a glimpse of the imaginative potential. Predictive maintenance, cybersecurity fortification, and grid optimization – all stand to benefit from the power of AI and ML
