Tokyo Electric Power (TEPCO) has surpassed ten million advanced meters and devices installed and communicating on the world's largest IoT (Internet of Things) utility network. In doing so, this complex project has now reached a breadth and deployment pace which is unparalleled in the utility industry.
One of the leading energy companies in Finland, Helen was the first to install the largest battery energy storage system (BESS) in the Nordics. Toshiba’s megawatt-scale BESS is used for improving network stability through control of frequency and voltage fluctuations in the grid.
One of the world’s largest energy providers has renewed their trust in Landis+Gyr: Spanish market leader IBERDROLA has signed an order for the supply of more than 700,000 smart meters, after Landis+Gyr has already been chosen to provide a total of 1.5 million devices over the past six years. The newly ordered smart meters are of the latest generation and will be installed within the scope of the final phase of the STAR mass rollout, starting in 2017. By December 2018, IBERDROLA aims to equip all of its domestic electricity customers with smart meters, as required by Spanish regulations.
An increasing number of energy customers in Burgenland will be able to save on energy costs in the future. Following the installation of 20,000 smart meters, Netz Burgenland is taking consistent positive stock and is set to deploy smart meters throughout its entire operating area. By the end of 2019, 180,000 additional devices will follow to satisfy the regulatory requirements in due time.
By its very nature, smart metering technology contributes to a more sustainable future. It enables utilities and consumers to make informed decisions about energy usage, improve their energy efficiency and encourages to responsible resource consumption. Smart Metering systems are an essential component of global efforts to upgrade energy distribution systems and master the transition to an increasingly decentralized grid architecture. They build the foundation for innovative energy management solutions, paving the way to a sustainable energy future.
On 30 November 2016 the European Commission put forth proposals for the most wide-reaching reform of energy policy in the European Union in almost 10 years.
