Posted on June 26th, 2009 by admin in Smart Grid

Comverge, a specialist in demand response systems, and smart meter maker Itron announced on June 24, 2009 they have successfully integrated two of their leading products. Both companies are components of the RocketCap Smart Grid Stock Index ©.

Itron’s OpenWay metering solution combined with Comverge’s Web-based demand management platform Apollo enables real-time, secure two-way, interactive communication between a utility and its customers. The partnership will serve those utilities building Advanced Metering Infrastructures to support their Smart Meters.

The integrated system uses the ZigBee Smart Energy Profile within the home area network (HAN) to collect appliance parameters. Naturally, Comverge and Itron claim that the integration will help utilities expand programs for energy efficiency and demand response.
