Kamstrup supplies smart meters to support the green transformation in Denmark


Skanderborg, Denmark – The Danish utility company Nord Energy has chosen Kamstrup as its supplier of 62,000 electricity smart meters. The deal means that all households in the supply area will be connected to the smart grid before the end of 2015. Currently, fossil fuels account for 50% of all electricity consumption in Denmark. In the next few years the Danish Government plans to replace fossil fuels more and more with renewable energy, especially wind energy. This will lead to a more differentiated tariff and give the customers an incentive to monitor their consumption closely. Just a few weeks before the turn of the year, the Danish Energy Agency finally announced that all electricity meters must be able to be remotely read by the end of 2020. With their investment, Nord Energy will have a supply that is future-proof and ready for the green energy transformation in Denmark. “Our investment will give us significant operational savings in the years to come and will also give our customers a number of advantages,” said Peder Kjeldgaard, Nord Energy’s CEO.

Nord Energy has already bought around 30,000 electricity smart meters from Kamstrup, which are, to a large extent, already installed. Kamstrup will begin delivery of the new order in April 2014 and the roll out of the smart grid system OMNIA is expected to be completed over a period of 18 months and finished before the end of 2015.

The agreement means that Kamstup will be the sole supplier on the project, including running the installation, and will deliver data to secure an optimised supply to the customers. “We’re looking forward to rolling out smart meters in the northern part of Denmark and to cooperating with Nord Energy on this project. When we finish the project, the electricity supply and the operation in Nord Energy will be of the highest possible standard and will support the goals of the Danish Government’s smart grid plan,” said CEO at Kamstrup, Per Asmussen.
