Itron Inc. and C3 Energy, an energy efficiency and customer engagement solutions provider, have launched a strategic alliance to integrate and jointly market an energy management solution to North American utilities.

According to Itron, the commitment will enable utilities to leverage their Itron smart metering and meter data management technologies to provide comprehensive energy management services to their customers. The integrated solution will also accelerate the utility's time to value, harnessing the power of the smart grid for consumer benefit, the company adds.

"This alliance with C3 Energy is an excellent opportunity to enable utilities to create knowledge from smart metering, strengthening customer relationships and benefiting both the utility and its customers," says Philip Mezey, Itron president and chief operations officer of energy.
