Brazilian utility picks eMeter for smart meter data management
ELO is developing a large-scale smart metering solution in response to Brazil's push to replace up to 63 million electric meters in the country by 2021
San Mateo, Calif., April 12, 2011 — Brazilian utility ELO Sistemas Eletronicos has selected eMeter's EnergyIP, an Energy Information Management Platform to address the data management and integration requirements for its end-to-end smart meter solution.
ELO chose to offer a complete smart metering and information management solution for its utility customers to help increase automation, address non-technical loss and improve energy reliability and quality.
A reseller and manufacturer of electric meters with a 40 percent market share in Brazil, ELO realized that a smart meter implementation can only be successful if a scalable and extensible software infrastructure is also put in place to manage the smart meter data and integrate with the utility's core back end systems.
After a thorough evaluation process, ELO selected eMeter as its software partner to address the Brazilian market's requirements.

With offices in Brazil and Chile, ELO is a supplier of electronic equipment and systems to the Brazilian and South American electricity supply market.
