Experience what's next.
What’s coming next is always in front of you. And you need to be prepared to make the right decision for your business. Maybe it is the (next) roll-out of intelligent endpoints that enable additional applications. Your company could also be looking to improve your processes for more efficient operations. Or you’d like to learn how to create true value from AMI data – beyond billing. At this year’s European Utility Week, we invite you to experience what could be coming next for your business.
At our booth, we take you on a four step journey to make the complex simple:
1. Build on best practices and look forward to inspiring projects from across Europe.
2. Choose the right technology with Gridstream® Connect. Our flexible, scalable utility IoT platform brings together intelligent endpoints, communications, software and applications and opens up a whole new range of opportunities for deeper grid edge intelligence, data driven use cases and increased connectivity.
3. Our Managed Services offering enables you to run your grid operations more efficiently – so that you have the time and resources to focus on your core business.
4. The more intelligent the grid, the more data are available – and with this, more powerful analytics to create business value. Understand what it takes to leverage grid edge data for utility and consumer benefits.
We think ‘managing energy better’ has never been more important and we are looking forward to achieving this together. Join us at our booth to find out what it takes.

Build on best practices
No customer project is the same and surely there is no one-size-fits all. However, a long track record of successful and diverse rollouts across the globe has equipped us with valuable experience. Apart from the complex technicalities, we strongly believe that the way you run a project and how you collaborate is crucial. So have a look at some examples and look forward to more at our booth.
Choose the right technology
Landis+Gyr’s Gridstream® Connect brings together hardware, communications, software and applications to provide a flexible, scalable utility IoT platform for future-looking energy utilities. It extends beyond AMI with a strong focus on interoperability and connectivity on all layers, it’s built to seamlessly integrate with an increasingly connected world. Our future-proof intelligent endpoints provide the basis for more intelligence at the grid edge. Secure, reliable and flexible communication solutions and expert advice on different communication options ensures connectivity and our open software platform enables further applications.
Manage operations efficiently
Having the right technological setup is one key success factor. Efficiently managing smart infrastructures is another. The transformation of our industry demands a whole new level of attention and skills when it comes to digital strategies, data usage and new use cases. Managed Services free utilities from having to worry about IT investments, software management, daily AMI operations or field operations so that they can keep their focus on the new opportunities.
Leverage your data
Intelligent endpoints with higher data collection capabilities create more and more data - and enable new use cases and additional value creation at the grid edge - beyond billing. No matter whether you’re trying to optimize your asset management, ensure power quality or improve network reliability. We present extended use cases from AMI that create greater transparency, control and efficiency for DSOs and more ways to interact with end consumers.

Implementing a smart meter rollout is a journey: What it takes to get it right
When deciding on a smart metering implementation, the energy utility embarks on a journey, one of joint enterprise and team effort that impacts the entire organization. We have supported various utilities with their smart meter rollouts, from first-time installations to second wave implementations. Depending on customers’ needs, our delivery scope has varied from providing technology to turnkey project management.
There is no 'one size fits all' solution
There are many smart meter rollout projects happening across Europe. Determining the right kind of smart metering solution is a crucial strategic decision for a utility in the initial stage of smart meter project planning. The number of available devices, software and communication technologies as well as potential partners is huge, as is the spectrum between the two extremes – namely the component and the turn-key solutions.
Top tips for ensuring a smooth smart meter rollout
Smart meter rollouts are unique projects that present utilities with a different set of challenges and complexities, compared with day-to-day operations. A rollout that is well planned and well executed can save time, costs and resources.
Major contract with E.ON in Sweden
Our Gridstream® Connect solution is being implemented at one million metering points by E.ON in Sweden. With this contract, E.ON is transitioning to second-generation smart metering technology for excellent customer service and grid efficiency.
The Linky project in France: tailor-made production is a key success factor
The French smart meter is called Linky. It is being rolled out by the country’s largest grid operator Enedis, which manages 95% of the operation, maintenance and development of the public electricity distribution network in continental France. We have been a trusted partner for this project since it was first launched in 2007.
Smart meter rollout in Austria: on the final mile
Almost four years ago, Austrian utility Netz Burgenland Strom commissioned us to supply and deploy smart electricity meters – as one of the country’s first distribution system operators to commit to a full-scale G3 PLC smart metering solution rollout.
