Landis+Gyr has reached a company record at its Nuremberg production facility with the production and delivery of its five-millionth heat meter. This is a great achievement for its 220+ employees on the site and a remarkable success story for the company’s international Center of Competence (CoC) for both heat and cooling meters.
In 2007, Landis+Gyr started its sustainability journey by measuring its carbon footprint for the very first time. While having reduced its greenhouse gas emissions by over 30 percent until today, the company has steadily expanded the monitoring of its environmental impact and reported these findings in its yearly Environmental Profile. Today, Landis+Gyr’s extended Sustainability Report includes all relevant environmental, social and governance (ESG) impacts of its activities. As the latest report shows, the journey continues successfully.
In an eight-month pilot project, Liechtensteinische Kraftwerke (LKW) and Landis+Gyr are testing the potential of Advanced Grid Analytics for typical utility company processes in medium- and low-voltage networks. The aim of the pilot project is to demonstrate the effectiveness of smart meter data for grid analysis and optimization. The project was launched at the beginning of September this year, and once it is successfully completed, country-wide rollout is planned with a total of 27,000 metering points.
