As the legislative and regulatory drivers around smart meter data privacy continue to take shape, the transmission of energy consumption data is coming under increased scrutiny.

Landis+Gyr have invested significant effort to enhance their Gridstream® smart grid solution to include secure communications. This will help its customers comply with the requirements of the European Union directive on privacy and its recommendations for the rollout of smart metering systems.

New Call-to-action

The key points highlighted by Philip Mason, our security specialist from Landis+Gyr in a previous webinar on Solution Security were:

  • The EU regulatory environment for smart meter security and privacy

  • Achieving interoperability in smart meter communications security

  • How using encrypted and authenticated messaging builds trust

  • The Gridstream solution secure communications implementation

The need to demonstrate trust has never been more important in smart meter rollouts as media exposure, privacy and legislative concerns rise.

Below is a presentation given by Christian Giroux, Solutions Product Manager, Smart Energy Solutions Landis+Gyr AG, at the European Utility Week 2014 in the session, 'Smart Meter Data Access'.
