Itron Inc. has announced that it will supply E.ON, one of the largest utility companies in Hungary, with more than 7,600 smart meters for business and residential customers across the country.

The deployment will begin later this month and is an expansion of an initial gas and electric meter pilot that is currently under way. E.ON serves electricity to 60% of the residents and businesses across Hungary, and the meters will be installed at a random selection of the utility's 2.5 million customers.

According to Itron, its general packet radio service meters allow for automated monitoring and increased communication about energy usage. Over the coming months and years, the Hungarian Energy Office will use the data derived from the smart meters to evaluate consumer energy use and efficiency.

“The automated monitoring and control will provide a wealth of new information for E.ON about energy usage, thus allowing utilities to more effectively serve their customers,” says István Biró, Itron’s regional business unit manager.
