Landis+Gyr, a provider of smart metering and grid management solutions, has helped lead the rollout of smart metering systems to 98% of Finland's households.

According to Landis+Gyr, the company has delivered over 1 million smart meters to a number of Finnish energy companies - the equivalent of delivering a smart meter to every third Finnish household in a country with approximately 3.2 million metering points.

The company adds that its projects in Finland also included logistics for the management of old and new meters, system installation, and integrations, as well as comprehensive field testing prior to project acceptance.

Legislation mandated that 80% of Finnish households were to have smart meters installed by the beginning of this year, Landis+Gyr notes.

"We have created the base for the smart grid, and we plan to make best use of the technology far into the future," comments Landis+Gyr's Jon Stretch.
