Greentech Lead U.K: With over 300 million electricity meters in more than 30 countries, Landis+Gyr has been ranked the 2013 Global Company of the Year in the Advanced Meter Infrastructure (AMI) by Frost & Sullivan.

A member of the Toshiba Group, Landis+Gyr serves nearly 8000 utility customers worldwide.

Landis+Gyr occupies the leadership position in terms of AMI meter sales in North America, Europe, Brazil and Asia Pacific participating in many of the biggest smart meter and smart grid projects in the world.

In North America, the company has been engaged in products with Pennsylvania utility (PECO), Californian utility Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E), Southern California Edison, AEP Texas and Guam Power Authority (GPA).

Landis+Gyr’s Oncor project is current the firms largest advanced metering system rollout in the US, while its residential smart meter E-350 FOCUS AX, a solid-state advanced electric meter with integrated service switch, is widely deployed by large utilities across the region.

In Europe Landis+Gyr completed the rollout of 200,000 smart meters  and the deployment of load-shifting technology for electric-heated homes in Helsinki, Finland in 2012. Last year, it also signed a major contract with Ericsson Eesti, to enable Estonia’s largest distribution company, Elektrilevi, to fully move to smart metering by 2017.

Landis+Gyr has a strong presence in other major smart metering hotspots such as Scandinavia, Estonia, Central and Eastern Europe. In France and Spain, it continues to remain a strong player, even as it extends its reach into emerging markets such as Poland and Russia.

In the Asia-Pacific region, the company signed multi-year contracts with both SP AusNet and CitiPower/Powercor in Australia to provide smart meters to more than 1.5 million electricity end-users in the state of Victoria. These deployments represent the largest smart meter rollouts to date in Australia.
