It was only last year when Landis+Gyr was awarded an AMI service contract for Finland’s largest distribution system operator, Caruna Oy. The comprehensive “Metering as a Service” solution is now up and running and comprises not less than the full take-over of Caruna’s complete AMI infrastructure in the Nordic region’s largest Managed Services project to date.
For over a decade, Vallebygdens Energi in Sweden has operated smart metering. Now, when transferring to second generation AMI technology, the utility chose Landis+Gyr as its partner with the aim of improving operational efficiency using their advanced offering and Software as a Service solution.
Imagine – at 7.30pm city buildings built in the 10th century light up together. Three minutes later, all the buildings dating from the 11th century light up, and so on until the most modern ones are lit in a city-wide light show, century by century. Since the end of last year, this has become a reality in Czechs capital Prague – powered by Landis+Gyr technology.
Managing distribution assets is a key consideration for utilities, as they look to maximize the life of existing and new asset investments. With Advanced Grid Analytics, the AMI data can be harnessed to help utilities make sound strategic investment decisions.
At first glance, Freiamt, a small town in Baden-Wuerttemberg close to the French border, seems an unlikely location for the next step in the future of energy distribution. But thanks to forward-thinking decisions made over 20 years ago and the work of a project team consisting of nine energy market players, including the local utility provider Netze BW and Landis+Gyr, big things are happening.
