Cham - Landis+Gyr is delivering 1.4 million sensors to the energy provider National Grid. The meter will be used in a new grid monitoring system that is expected to be completed in Massachusetts in 2027.

Landis+Gyr is to deliver grid sensors for an innovative advanced energy metering infrastructure in the American state of Massachusetts. Landis+Gyr Technology Inc., which is headquartered in Alpharetta in Georgia, has signed a contract for the delivery of 1.4 million Revelo Grid sensors with the utility company National Grid. An Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) is being set up in the state. The Department of Public Utilities (DPU) in Massachusetts approved the construction of the new infrastructure. This public utility division oversees investor-owned electric, natural gas, and water utilities in Massachusetts.

“New metering and sensing technologies like Revelo create opportunities for automation of critical functions that didn’t exist before,” commented Chuck Yechout, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Landis+Gyr. “This provides utilities and their customers with increased connectivity, processing power and situational awareness to cost-effectively manage the clean energy transition.”

The AMI project will begin this year and is expected to be completed in 2027, according to the company. National Grid will install Landis+Gyr’s Revelo meter. The latest generation of smart grid technology, it provides real-time data to both utilities and energy consumers. Revelo enables the simultaneous monitoring of the energy supplied and consumed across the entire system in real time, instead of just recording past energy consumption at time intervals for later analysis. This gives consumers and energy suppliers the opportunity to react immediately to changes in energy availability and costs.
