Secure Meters Ltd.
Secure Meters Ltd is an Indian, privately owned multi-national business. Our focus is helping to ensure energy security throughout the energy supply chain - a critical issue worldwide. Our vision is for all consumers to reduce energy use, live in comfort and save money. We established our headquarters in Udaipur, Rajasthan in 1985. In 1987 we were able to produce 25 electricity meters a year; now we produce 4,000,000 meters annually and 99% of the electrons flowing in the Indian grid will be measured at least once by a Secure meter.
We have three manufacturing plants and two R&D centres in India, where we employ 600 engineers to solve complex problems with simple, user friendly and complete solutions. We have 5500 employees in India and 650 in the UK. Our factories train and employee youth and women and contribute to the 'Skill India' initiative and Secure's work is a prime example of the 'Make in India' initiative. With our partners, we also run state of the art manufacturing plants in Ghana and Malaysia.
There are currently over 1 million Secure smart meters (electricity and gas) in-circuit in the UK and Australia. In England, Utilita is using these smart pre-payment meters to help the fuel poor with success. In Australia, the immanent market led rollout of smart meters needs a clear understanding of customer benefits. As a retailer of both gas and electricity in UK, Secure is the only metering company with firsthand experience of what retailers need. Our solution is based on this experience and will provide retailers flexibility and minimum hassle.
Around 40% of the energy consumed in the world is consumed by pumps and blowers. Using thermodynamic principles and accurate metering, it is possible to pinpoint areas of improvement that make pumps more efficient and therefore save energy. We continue to innovate in this field..Secure must keep an eye to the future. Our work with social housing, through the controls business, has given us an understanding of the needs of an ageing population. This insight, coupled with cutting edge projects currently underway in this area, will help the elderly to maintain their independence while receiving cost effective care.
The belief that only a responsible business can endure, drives us to work in all spheres where we have influence. Over the past five years Secure has gradually lowered its carbon emissions while increasing productivity. Secure has cultivated a volunteering programme by facilitating and paying for each of our employees to spend at least three working days a year volunteering on educational initiatives of their choice and there can be no doubt that this engagement constantly enriches and informs all of our number in all aspects of our daily life.
