Whether providing load disaggregation for energy-using devices or automating switching of loads, such as EV chargers, consumers can optimize their energy management without having to think about it. With set-and-forget features, consumers can manage their energy usage, monthly bills, and payment plans, while accessing information that helps them save energy and money before the bill comes. Consumers retain control of their energy data and can choose to make it available to third parties that offer value-added energy management services.
To enhance the consumer engagement features of smart grid technology, Landis+Gyr partnered with Sense, an established provider of home energy monitoring equipment, to provide these capabilities in the Revelo meter. Such applications will provide a direct link, via smart phone app, to real-time tracking of appliance and energy loads within the home. This is useful, not only to provide insights into how and when energy is used, but also to provide a way for users to remotely check the safety and security of their homes.
The technology and automation to transition to a cleaner energy future is here today. Landis+Gyr continues to work with thousands of utilities worldwide to supply products and services that support the integration of cleaner energy resources while maintaining a reliable and resilient grid.
