ESB Networks to deploy Itron’s smart meter data solution

Itron announced its technology a contract to deploy Temetra, Itron’s meter data collection and management solution for the Electricity Supply Board’s networks company (ESB Networks) to optimize operations and improve meter data management.

ESB Networks, Ireland’s distribution network operator, will be deploying Temetra in 2022 in conjunction with its Smart Metering Programme for the roll out of smart meters across Ireland as part of the National Climate Action Plan. With Temetra, the utility will be equipped to efficiently read 1.75 million meters across ESB Networks’ service territory.

Temetra will assist ESB Networks to monitor the status of both meters and the data that the meter readers collect. This allows ESB Networks to work more efficiently by utilizing Temetra Geo-Routing to quickly assign or reassign work based on meter and meter reading location.

“With Itron’s Temetra solution, we will use advanced data collection and data management software-as-a-service to manage reliable and efficient electricity for millions of homes and businesses,” Peter Warner, Information System and Retail Market Services Manager at ESB Networks.

“ESB Networks is deploying Temetra and can access benefits from our solution, including the ability to modify meter data and assignments anywhere through a simple web login rather than having to maintain locally installed software,” said Don Reeves, senior vice president of Outcomes at Itron.
