Landis+Gyr, a global supplier of smart meters and energy management solutions, will be contributing to the further development of Slovenia through the deployment of smart metering infrastructure and energy-efficiency tools for the residential sector to the country's largest utility, Elektro Ljubljana. The utility's decision to invest in advanced metering is based on a compelling business case rather than a response to regulatory requirements.
“We recognised the importance of introducing smart metering given the benefits offered — such as detailed billing and consumption data and other related services to help end consumers better monitor their energy consumption, thereby helping them achieve true energy efficiency — as well as helping us improve our network management,” said Igor Podbelšek, executive director at Elektro Ljubljana. “We decided to invest in smart metering infrastructure following a series of pilot projects during 2007 and 2008. Results of these projects showed us that the technology was robust, reduced distribution costs and improved services for the end consumer while at the same time increasing network efficiency. As a result of their technology and product performance, we chose Landis+Gyr as our partner.”
The largest utility in Slovenia, Elektro Ljubljana supplies the capital city of Ljubljana and its suburbs, and covers 325,000 metering points.
