In October, Landis+Gyr announced a major milestone with the first ‘next generation’ UK smart meter installation for its customer British Gas. Using the latest technology, the new smart meters for electricity and gas enable seamless switching between suppliers and comply with the UK Government’s ground-breaking smart energy standard, SMETS2 ('smart metering equipment technical specifications 2’).
Landis+Gyr’s and Vattenfall’s AMI pilot project on the implementation of next-generation metering technology in Sweden is going full steam ahead. The project also includes a pilot of Landis+Gyr’s SaaS service.
One of the world’s largest energy providers has renewed their trust in Landis+Gyr: Spanish market leader IBERDROLA has signed an order for the supply of more than 700,000 smart meters, after Landis+Gyr has already been chosen to provide a total of 1.5 million devices over the past six years. The newly ordered smart meters are of the latest generation and will be installed within the scope of the final phase of the STAR mass rollout, starting in 2017. By December 2018, IBERDROLA aims to equip all of its domestic electricity customers with smart meters, as required by Spanish regulations.
On 30 November 2016 the European Commission put forth proposals for the most wide-reaching reform of energy policy in the European Union in almost 10 years. The so-called, “Winter Package” or the official title, "Clean Energy for all Europeans", is a massive package of legislative proposals, Commission Decisions and official Communications and Reports.
Landis+Gyr commits to high standards in environmental awareness and business ethics across its operations, products and services. The ‘Fair Meter’ initiative of a major customer project in the Netherlands demonstrates the company’s contribution to developing and delivering market leading, environmentally and socially conscious technologies and products.
Advances in micro-generation of renewables, storage technologies, ICT, IoT, and, not least, shifting DSO and end-user capabilities are changing expectations in the smart metering industry. To meet these and future market challenges Landis+Gyr extends its smart meter portfolio with a new residential electricity meter, the E360. This innovative device represents a completely new approach to smart meter technology and is specifically designed to accommodate more mature smart metering markets.
