METERS AND MORE to showa ‘cost-effective’ standard protocol for smart metering at African Utility Week

Posted by Anita PodsiadloMay 13, 2015

METERS AND MORE AISBL, has announced it is a silver sponsor at African Utility Week, the utility conference and expo in Africa. In addition, the Association will present the METERS AND MORE Standard Protocol at a session titled, “METERS AND MORE: Beyond the Meter,” on Thursday 14 May at 12.25 a.m.

METERS AND MORE technology has been chosen to connect over 50 million customers worldwide. The presentation will also highlight insights from ongoing roll outs of smart metering and smart public lighting projects across Europe, Latin America and Asia, and discuss new smart grid interfaces for applications beyond the meter.

METERS AND MORE will be exhibiting at Booth #S07 throughout the three day event. Representatives will be available to provide in depth information on the METERS AND MORE protocol. It is officially recognised as a standard protocol for smart grid communications at CENELEC (CLC/FPrTS 50568) and, because it uses powerline communications (PLC) for remote meter management, the METERS AND MORE protocol offers African utilities a cost effective opportunity to add secure communications to the existing network.

African Utility Week takes place from 12-14 May at the CTICC in Cape Town, South Africa. It brings together thousands of utility professionals to discuss solutions to the challenges facing the industry across the continent. Attendees will include utility heads, the continent’s renewable energy project managers, investors and technology providers.
