In the past two years, the transformation of the energy industry has accelerated. We caught up with Bodo Zeug, Executive Vice President and Head of Landis+Gyr EMEA, and discussed with him about the megatrends in the energy sector, how they affect utilities and how Landis+Gyr intends to support utilities in tackling current and upcoming challenges.
Falkenberg Energi chose the Landis+Gyr Gridstream© Connect platform with point-to-point communicating E360 NB-IoT meters and Software as a Service (SaaS) to improve their operations and enable future development.
Tokyo Electric Power (TEPCO) has surpassed ten million advanced meters and devices installed and communicating on the world's largest IoT (Internet of Things) utility network. In doing so, this complex project has now reached a breadth and deployment pace which is unparalleled in the utility industry.
The smart energy transformation in Austria is gaining pace. Energy utilities around the country are working hard to meet the target set in 2012 by the Austrian Ministry for Economy, Family and Youth of 95% of households to be equipped with smart meters by 2019.
Originally developed specifically for Germany’s three biggest utilities, the E750 multi- modular metering solution integrates seamlessly with SAP, is easy to install and inexpensive to manage. These were just some of the factors that led to the first E750 contract outside Germany.
Landis+Gyr was recently awarded the contract to support Swiss energy supplier, Energie Thun with an advanced multi-energy metering solution. The Swiss utility chose Gridstream®, an interoperable, future-ready end-to-end solution that combines smart multi-energy meters, AMI software and professional services in a single secure and integrated platform.
