Landis+Gyr and the Estonian operations of Ericsson, Ericsson Eesti, will provide a residential smart metering solution to the electricity distribution company of Estonia's Eesti Energia, Elektrilevi.

Ericsson Eesti is responsible for the project and its implementation, including integrating the smart metering solution into Elektrilevi's systems. The Finnish operations of Landis+Gyr, Landis+Gyr Oy, will deliver approximately 630,000 smart household meters and over 10,000 data concentrators, as well as supply Gridstream HES smart metering software.

"By 2017, we will be able to extend smart metering to all our customers. The provision of hourly consumption data helps our customers to manage their energy consumption. We can also improve the quality of our customer service and increase customer satisfaction, as our service is now based on customers' real-time consumption data," says Mait Rahi, head of smart metering programs at Elektrilevi.

Pilot installations of the system will start in this fall; the project is due to be complete by January 2017.
