Mitsubishi Electric Corp. will deploy Itron's smart grid software for a significant smart metering project with Japanese electric utility Chubu Electric Power Co.

According to Itron, its OpenWay collection engine software will be installed at Chubu Electric to securely collect and relay a high volume of data from field routers and approximately 10 million smart meters and deliver that data to the utility's meter data management system.

The smart grid software, Itron notes, will help empower consumers to conserve energy and improve back-end utility processes.
