Towards multi-energy smart metering for Finnish city

22 June 2010 – Landis+Gyr is to deliver a smart metering solution for electricity, gas and district heat metering to Lappeenrannan Energiaverkot, the utility of the city of Lappeenranta, Finland.
 
The agreement is for the deployment of Landis+Gyr’s ‘Gridstream’ solution, which comprises multi-energy smart meters, smart metering software and meter reading services. The company will also be responsible for project management and, with the help of its partners, the rollout – beginning in April 2011.
 
Gridstream is a complete energy management offering that addresses all of a utility’s energy needs in one, providing a solid foundation for the installation of smart metering and, ultimately, the development of the smart grid, says Landis+Gyr.
 
Jon Stretch, executive vice president at Landis+Gyr EMEA, said, ‘We will provide hourly metering data to the company every day for at least the next 15 years, and are looking forward to this long-standing cooperation. All customers of Lappeenrannan Energiaverkot will be billed for actual and not estimated consumption, and thereby benefit from the great potential that smart metering has to offer.’
