Landis Gyr & MicroEJ Collaborate On App OS Platform For Next Gen Smart Meters

BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

MicroEJ, the leading provider of software containers for IoT and embedded devices, and Landis+Gyr, a global leader in energy management technologies, announced their collaboration to expand the app development environment for the next generation of smart meters. This collaboration establishes the digital foundation for more efficient and sustainable energy management.

Through innovative software containerization, MicroEJ Virtual Execution Environment provides an app operating system for Landis+Gyr’s Revelo® meter. Revelo’s unique waveform sampling makes it a highly accurate sensor and supports software applications for decision making at the grid edge.

Recognizing this impact, Frost & Sullivan awarded Landis+Gyr the 2022 Global AMI Company of the Year Award, an acknowledgement that highlights the potential of this platform to radically transforming how utilities operate.

Partnership provides better energy management

With rising consumer expectations for fast, personalized, and secure energy management, utility providers must maximize customer service capabilities at the grid edge. Revelo supports grid and consumer applications running on the MicroEJ platform that both optimize management of the grid and improve consumer engagement through:

  • Enhanced grid resiliency and reliability through grid-facing applications
  • Enhanced consumer experience with end-user usage monitoring with appliance-level granularity
  • Support for integration and monitoring of distributed energy resources

As Todd Bushey, Vice President, Technologies at Landis+Gyr observes, “The next generation of meter technologies are a critical next step for energy management. Revelo and its related future-ready utility IoT platform provide the edge intelligence and sensing function to provide utilities and consumers with the capabilities to reach their goals. The flexibility of the MicroEJ environment enables us to provide an effective platform for app enablement and expansion in the future.”

Fred Rivard, CEO of MicroEJ, confirms, “MICROEJ VEE flagship software containers power the digital transformation of future-proof energy meters to an unprecedented level, enhancing services and energy management over the life of a smart meter. This turnkey solution supports the customization and personalization of smart meter applications to address new consumer needs, thereby achieving a sustainable and cost-effective platform for future development.”
