Echelon Corp. and Kapsch Smart Energy - a subsidiary of the Kapsch Group, which offers solutions for smart energy management - have announced that they are currently operating 13,000 of Echelon's smart meters at Stadtwerke Feldkirch, the municipal utility for the City of Feldkirch, Austria.

According to Echelon, Feldkirch was the first city in Austria to employ smart metering. Kapsch operates not only the meters, but also the network infrastructure, the central control and analysis system, and the energy consumption information for the end customer portal, where households and businesses can view their power consumption in order to optimize their power use.

Kapsch and Echelon say they plan to target other markets in Austria and Central Europe to offer the regions’ utilities a multi-application grid modernization platform.
