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. The so-called, “Winter Package” or the official title, "Clean Energy for all Europeans", is a massive package of legislative proposals, Commission Decisions and official Communications and Reports.
In 2015, Landis+Gyr supplied its smart grid solution comprised of S760 Smart Grid Device Integrator and SmartCom RTU to AEW, a DSO and electricity supplier for the area of Aargau. AEW was looking to maintain grid stability through the management of power generation of PV in the grid and to increase network visualization through the monitoring of transformer stations.
Landis+Gyr commits to high standards in environmental awareness and business ethics across its operations, products and services. The ‘Fair Meter’ initiative of a major customer project in the Netherlands demonstrates the company’s contribution to developing and delivering market leading, environmentally and socially conscious technologies and products.
Advances in micro-generation of renewables, storage technologies, ICT, IoT, and, not least, shifting DSO and end-user capabilities are changing expectations in the smart metering industry. To meet these and future market challenges Landis+Gyr extends its smart meter portfolio with a new residential electricity meter, the E360. This innovative device represents a completely new approach to smart meter technology and is specifically designed to accommodate more mature smart metering markets.
