Landis+Gyr has announced it will deliver smart meter products and software solutions to energy utility RWE in Poland for installation in residential buildings located in the city of Warsaw. Deliveries are due to start in September, with system installation scheduled for the end of the year.

Under the terms of the agreement, Landis+Gyr will deliver its Gridstream end-to-end solution, including 50,000 smart meters and an AIM head end system, to RWE. Landis+Gyr says the AIM system will have an interface to RWE's existing IT infrastructure and is designed to support its asset management needs, as well as its billing services. A four-year service contract is also included in the contract terms.

“We are proud to have been selected by RWE for this inaugural smart metering deployment in Poland,” comments Andreas Umbach, Landis+Gyr’s president and CEO.

RWE has a number of companies in Poland, including RWE Polska and RWE Stoen Operator. The latter company manages the Warsaw power network.

“Implementation of the smart grid concept in the area of our operation will essentially improve the level of energy efficiency of the system as a whole,” says Agnieszka Nosal, board member of RWE Stoen Operator. “It will also allow for the development of distributed generation, which is to play a major role in the future energy market.

“Investment in AMI will bring many benefits to end consumers, providing them with access to actual consumption data, as well as enabling the utility to rapidly identify any interference in the network. The introduction of flexible product sales tailored to the lifestyle needs of individual customers will also come in the future.”

Between 2014 and 2019, RWE foresees that 25% of its investments will go into smart infrastructure, which totals 420 million Polish Zloty (approximately $138 million).
