Itron Inc. says it has completed the delivery of its meter data collection system, a key component of Iberdrola's smart meter program, to support the development of the smart grid in Spain. The project began with Iberdrola in 2010.

Together, Itron and Iberdrola have reached this project milestone as part of the development and implementation of the broader advanced metering management (AMM) system for 2 million meters.

Iberdrola's smart meter program is focused on developing a new open and interoperable solution based on the PRIME telecommunications protocol. Currently, Iberdrola is reading more than 1 million PRIME meters per day and expects to reach the deployment and management of 2 million meters by the first quarter of 2014.
