Landis+Gyr to Play Key Role in Smart Grid Award for TEPCO

ZUG, Switzerland, May 8, 2013 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- With Toshiba Corporation's recent announcement that Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) has selected the firm's proposal for a smart metering communications system and associated meter data management system (MDMS), Landis+Gyr is poised to undertake its indispensable role for the world's largest smart grid project.


While Toshiba will work as a prime contractor and system integrator of the communication system, together with NTT Group and NEC Corporation, Landis+Gyr, the global leader in smart meter technology, will be providing much of the project's technical foundation, including: supplying the Head End System (HES), network expertise, RF communications modules, large scale product deployment experience and the meter data management system (MDMS).

"Landis+Gyr has been a keystone supplier of products and solution know-how for some of the largest smart metering deployments in the world," said Andreas Umbach, President and CEO of Landis+Gyr. "Our Gridstream® open-standards solution and software expertise, whether supporting RF mesh, PLC or other public network communications requirements, has provided unparalleled capability for our utility customers. Working with our partners, we look forward to providing TEPCO the tools for their 27 million customers to manage energy better." Smart metering is revolutionizing energy management and grid reliability across the globe. Smart metering solutions provide a two-way flow of data between customer meters and utility back-end systems. With this two-way data flow, utilities will be able to offer customers a broad array of new pricing, demand response, and energy automation options that enhance the efficiency and reliability of the electric grid. Customers will benefit from more information, expanded choices, and simpler, smarter management of their energy use.

"We have built a special team to leverage our Gridstream suite and network expertise for the worldwide utility market," said Marius Chilom, Vice President and Chief Solution Officer for Landis+Gyr's Global Gridstream Team. "We think TEPCO's approach to this massive upgrade project truly represents the new way of business in the industry and will become a flagship for how utilities will approach the next generation infrastructure." Landis+Gyr offers the broadest portfolio of products and services in the electricity metering industry including integrated AMI solutions, communication systems and software, meters, and meter data management.
