The impact of perceived control, enjoyment, cost, sustainability and trust on intention to use smart meters: an empirical study using SEM-PLS.

Smart Meters are capable of collecting, storing, and analyzing electricity consumption data in real-time and of electronically transmitting data between the electricity provider and the electricity end user. Despite its potential, smart meter technology is in its early adoption stage in many developing countries, and little is known about residents’ acceptance and usage of smart meters in those countries. Thus, this research aimed to fill this gap by studying the important factors that influence residents’ intentions to use smart meters in Jordan. A quantitative approach was followed by obtaining 242 survey responses and statistically testing the associated hypotheses using SEM-PLS. Results revealed that perceived control, perceived enjoyment, sustainability and trust can significantly and positively influence residents’ intentions to use smart meters. However, perceived cost was not found to have a significant negative influence on intention to use. Theoretical and practical implications are indicated, and directions of future research are specified afterwards.
