    Smart meter at the Top of Europe

    The network topology of Jungfraubahnen is situated in a beautiful mountain landscape in the Bernese Oberland. This mountainous and partly sparsely populated region poses challenges in terms of the accessibility of smart meters, as the combination of cables and overhead lines together with remote measuring points makes classic powerline communication difficult or even impossible due to attenuation at cable/overhead line transitions.


    As an integral part of the Energy Strategy 2050, Jungfraubahnen relies on intelligent electricity meters from Landis+Gyr, improving the accessibility of remote measuring points. The future-proof smart metering solution is optimised for the challenging Swiss topology and tailored to the high demands of the diverse customers in Landis+Gyr's home market.

    Choosing your AMI communication pathway

    Communication is a core component of any smart grid or AMI implementation. Depending on application use cases, geography, rural/urban areas, or existing infrastructure, however, a grid operator may choose PLC, mesh, or cellular communications. With an increasingly diverse and active consumer base that now includes prosumers, electric vehicle charging, renewables, and more, how can utilities ensure that all these segments are served without disrupting their AMI?

    Cyber security according to IEC 62443 in the energy sector

    The IEC 62443 family of standards is an old acquaintance to most security managers for industrial systems. For more than ten years, it has been considered THE standard for industrial cybersecurity. It also serves as a "horizontal standard" offering a sector-agnostic baseline for industrial cybersecurity, upon which sector-specific requirements, e.g. for the energy sector, could be added by industry experts. In this blog we explore its implications for the energy sector.

    Integrating Photovoltaic plants – the European challenge

    Integrating renewable energy into the low-voltage (LV) grid is a topic that we have discussed with over 40 DSOs in Europe and came to the understanding that a huge portion of new connection requests, especially for PV plants, are being rejected or significantly delayed.

    The challenge of connecting PV plants to the low-voltage grid is widespread among European DSOs (distribution system operators) and is causing significant concerns within the industry. To shed light on this problem, let us delve deeper into the various facets of this issue and explore potential solutions to address it.
