Landis+Gyr reported continued growth with public power utilities during 2017, signing 46 contracts for smart grid technology and services.
The contracts represent a wide variety of market offerings, including more than 350,000 metering endpoints, along with distribution automation and load management devices, software, and smart grid services.
Utilities such as Wyrulec Co. in Wyoming and Pioneer Electric in Alabama signed contracts to replace legacy advanced metering technology with Landis+Gyr’s RF Mesh platform. Seattle City Light deployed advanced grid analytics to improve asset monitoring and reliability.
“As public power utilities plan for the future of grid automation, we’re seeing increased interest in the technology that enables more communications flexibility and distributed intelligence,” said Tim Weidenbach, Senior Vice President of Sales and Customer Operations at Landis+Gyr. “Landis+Gyr already has proven the versatility to scale deployments as large as 27 million endpoints, as we are doing in Japan, while efficiently meeting the requirements of utilities of any size. Combined with the launch of our Gridstream Connect offering, we provide a viable transition from AMI to a network of IoT sensors that supports grid intelligence from the substation to the endpoint.”
