Landis+Gyr says it has been selected by Ameren Illinois to provide a comprehensive advanced metering and meter data management solution for the utility's smart grid initiative. Ameren Illinois, which provides electric service to 1.2 million customers in Illinois, will deploy Landis+Gyr's Gridstream RF mesh solution to enable two-way advanced metering.

The Gridstream network supports a variety of smart grid and advanced metering functions that help utilities manage peak energy loads, improve outage response and promote energy efficiency, according to Landis+Gyr.

Ameren Illinois' Modernization Action Plan (MAP) aims to make significant upgrades to the grid. In addition to advanced metering, Ameren Illinois plans to implement new outage-sensing technologies and fortify the existing distribution infrastructure. The MAP will serve as the blueprint that will guide Ameren Illinois throughout its 10-year grid modernization program.

Ameren Illinois will install new Gridstream network and metering equipment to meet the anticipated data and communication requirements of future smart grid applications. Complementing the Gridstream solution, Landis+Gyr will also be deploying the Ecologic meter data management system.
