The data collected from smart metering are opening up a whole new world of opportunities for utilities. Of course, you need the data for billing, but a lot more is possible today – and even more so in the future. With the E360 we have built an intelligent endpoint with enhanced communication and measurement capabilities. And as part of our end-to-end solution Gridstream® Connect, it accompanies our customers on their way towards more data-driven use cases.
Increasing amounts of data, interconnected utility infrastructures, regulation and a general awareness of security and privacy issues raise the pressure also on smart metering security. E360 is our response to the most stringent security requirements.
Landis+Gyr’s new ULTRAHEAT®T450 ultrasonic heat and cooling meter enables homes and buildings to be energy efficient and optimizes energy usage, even in the most demanding environments.
The energy system is experiencing systemic change. Generation is becoming decentralized and decarbonized with increased amounts of volatile renewable energy in the mix. Loads are becoming more flexible and grid operations more digitalized. To adapt and transform, Distribution System Operators (DSOs) require new capabilities to maintain and improve resiliency, flexibility, transparency and security. New solutions that help meeting these challenges are available and the key to unlock them lies in the intelligence at the edge of smart metering infrastructures.
Grästorp Energi chose the Landis+Gyr Gridstream© Connect platform with Point-to-Point communicating E360 meters for residential use, E570 commercial meters, including NB-IoT communication and SaaS-solution (Software as a Service). Thanks to Landis+Gyr’s technology and services, Grästorp Energi can focus on their core business and future development.
Alison Jeffers, who is Landis+Gyr’s Vice President of Customer Delivery for the EMEA region, says collaboration between all stakeholders is key to delivering successful smart meter rollout projects on time and on budget.
