eMeter, A Siemens Business has announced a new cloud-based offering for its EnergyIP smart grid application platform. The company says its software is designed for utilities needing to accommodate existing automatic meter reading systems and monthly reads while simultaneously embracing modern applications to advance customer engagement.

According to eMeter, the new offering can be accessed from the cloud directly via Siemens or through strategic partners as a managed service with subscription-based pricing on a per-meter, per-month basis. It is targeted toward small and midsize utilities, as they will not need to buy or maintain the software and hardware for data storage or hire IT experts to run the application, the company adds.
