It is becoming abundantly apparent that, while there is still focus on install rates of physical smart meters, what will matter in the future is how well the data from these smart meters can be secured by utilities and how well utilities can use that data to manage demand response, address outages and balance load, says Adam Lesser, GigaOM Pro Green IT analyst in his weekly column. Beyond these initial steps, however, lies the holy grail of smart meter data, says Adam: the possibility that it can be used to drive changes in customer behavior.
