Simply Energy sets up smart metering service with Landis+Gyr


Global smart metering and smart grid solutions provider Landis+Gyr has sealed an exclusive agreement with energy retailer Simply Energy to provide smart metering services to more than 550,000 households across Australia.

This partnership will be delivered through Landis+Gyr’s independent metering services subsidiary, intelliHUB, an Australian 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.

Peter Birk, chief executive of intelliHUB, said, “We are delighted to be partnering with Simply Energy to deliver an innovative platform that is designed for the future. 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”.

Carly Wishart, chief executive of Simply Energy, said, “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. 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 digitise our energy offering, ultimately giving our customers greater control over how and when they use energy.”

Why are passive solutions considered inferior? And what makes active solutions great?

Read more about these two solutions, and how PacketLight fits into all this.
