San Diego-based Detectent has joined the eMeter Alliance Program as an integrated meter data management technology and developer partner. Together, Detectent and eMeter, a business unit of Siemens, will develop and sell integrated revenue protection solutions for utility smart grid systems.

According to the companies, eMeter Alliance Program empowers eMeter's partners with the tools and support necessary to integrate their solutions with the EnergyIP Platform and certified applications.

eMeter’s integrated smart grid partner ecosystem provides utilities with pre-tested and certified interoperable solutions based on industry standards and best practices. As part of the ecosystem, partners gain access to a suite of Web services and support including sample code, demo software licenses and testing programs.

"Leveraging Detectent’s revenue protection application with the eMeter EnergyIP Platform provides reduced costs and risks for utilities," says Shannon Amerman, vice president of alliances at eMeter.
