Alectra to Deploy Itron’s Distributed Intelligence Technology for Grid Modernization
Itron and Alectra to Deploy Industrial IoT Network Solution Supporting Next-Generation Applications
As part of the project, Alectra is deploying Itron’s Gen5 Riva meters, multi-purpose industrial IoT (IIoT) network solution and utility management software suite, Utility IQ, designed to help collect and manage electricity consumption data and enable real time decision making.
Itron’s next generation meter technology has distributed intelligence and grid edge capabilities. Distributed intelligence provides utilities with the ability to transform their business operations through powerful edge computing capabilities that allow for unprecedented visibility and control in low and medium voltage distribution networks. Maximizing the benefits of advanced metering infrastructure, utilities can also take advantage of next-generation applications such as enhanced outage detection, electric vehicle management and more.
“The decision to renew our end-of-life metering infrastructure comes at an important time when advancements in technology are paving the way for a modernized grid,” said
“Itron’s proven solution gives Alectra the foundation to bring energy innovation to life and enabling grid modernization and sustainability,” said
Alectra plans to gradually replace its metering infrastructure over the next decade, ensuring a seamless transition to the new technology.
