Without doubt, flexibility will be a key component in the future of energy grids. Future grids will need to have the capability to react almost instantaneously to changes in loads to efficiently manage constantly fluctuating consumption and generation. On utility and DSO side, there is an expectation of a full suite of smart grid devices that match particular requirements. These needs will be shaped by a wide range of factors from population density to climate and geography. Some parts of the world produce a lot of wind power or have access to geothermal sources of energy. Colder regions need to monitor heating consumption, while warmer regions need accurate data on consumption of energy used for cooling. Thanks to cutting-edge solutions from Landis+Gyr, every region can have smart grids tailor-made to their needs in a way that maximizes the gains these technologies offer.
What are the ideal installation instructions for our customers? And how do we make it easier for installers and technicians to access the information that they need to set up on meters, even in dark environments? We designed and developed a comprehensive and user-friendly solution: the Landis+Gyr "Info Finder" smartphone app.
Landis+Gyr extends its product portfolio with ULTRAHEAT® T330 / ULTRACOLD® T330, the new ultrasonic meter for residential heating and cooling applications. The T330 delivers top-level measurement accuracy and stability, robust design and easy handling.
Landis+Gyr recently won an open tender to supply a complete heat metering solution to the state-run energy supplier HS Veitur in Iceland.
Landis+Gyr presents a new generation of large ultrasonic meters, ULTRAHEAT qp 150, extending the existing portfolio by nominal size DN 150 with nominal flow of 150 m3/h, available to order in June/July 2014.
