Landis+Gyr and Simply Energy partner on smart metering
Friday, 02 February, 2018
Landis+Gyr, a provider of smart metering and smart grid solutions, has entered into an exclusive agreement with energy retailer Simply Energy to provide smart metering services to more than 550,000 households across Australia.
The partnership will be delivered through Landis+Gyr’s independent metering services subsidiary, intelliHUB — an independent, AEMO-accredited metering service provider for energy retailers. Offering end-to-end smart metering as a service, intelliHUB creates services packages tailored specifically to individual retailer needs, including applications and software, communication, network management and metering devices.
“In appointing an independent metering services provider, we wanted a company that has a strong, Australian presence but also the ability to leverage innovative energy technology and experience from around the world,” said Simply Energy CEO Carly Wishart. “Backed by Landis+Gyr, intelliHUB offers exactly that.
“At Simply Energy, we are committed to providing efficient energy solutions to our customers. By working with intelliHUB, it will help enable us to digitise our energy offering, ultimately giving our customers greater control over how and when they use energy.”
“We are delighted to be partnering with Simply Energy to deliver an innovative platform that is designed for the future,” added intelliHUB CEO Peter Birk. “With intelliHUB, Simply Energy will be able to take advantage of emerging technologies such as consumer and grid analytics and smart load control as customers demand greater control over their energy consumption.
“Smart meters provide the all-important ‘backbone’ for smart cities and all that is possible with the advent of the Internet of Things (IoT). Ultimately, metering services providers like intelliHUB can bring such opportunities to retailers and energy consumers in a way that is scalable, cost-effective and timed to suit customer needs as they evolve.”
The deal marks an important step in intelliHUB’s strategy to be the leading provider of metering and allied services under the Power of Choice legislation, which came into effect on 4 December 2017.
