Landis+Gyr to deliver smart grid technology for TEPCO

With Toshiba Corp.’s recent announcement that Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) has selected the firm’s proposal for a smart metering communications system and associated meter data management system (MDMS), Landis+Gyr will deliver smart grid technology for this smart grid project.

While Toshiba will work as a contractor and system integrator of the communication system, together with NTT Group and NEC Corp., Landis+Gyr will provide much of the project’s technical foundation, including: supplying the head-end system, networking, RF communications modules, large scale product deployment experience and the meter data management system (MDMS).

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.
