The rollout of smart metering with G3 technology continues. After the successful technology field tests during the first half of 2015, there are currently several customer pilot projects ongoing around EMEA, for example in Austria, Latvia and Slovenia.
At the beginning of 2015, we started the first field tests on G3 PLC technology. The results described below are based on two test installations that ran for several months in our customers’ networks. Following on from these tests, we started a customer pilot, which has so far proven our findings.
New cost and resource effective smart metering communication technology provides the basis for smart grid and smart home applications.
Landis+Gyr is expanding its smart grid solution portfolio with G3 powerline communication (PLC) technology. This solution transfers metering data through the electrical grid particularly efficiently, making it the basis for powerful yet cost efficient energy management solutions.
