Landis+Gyr and Smart Choice Metering Agree Innovative Deal to Deliver SMETS2 Meters to UK homes
London – March 04, 2021 – Landis+Gyr (LAND.SW), a leading supplier of energy management solutions, today announced it has signed an agreement with meter asset provider Smart Choice Metering Ltd , to supply in excess of 120,000 SMETS2 smart meters to the UK market.
Smart Choice Metering installs, owns, and manages smart meters for suppliers at commercial and domestic properties across the UK. The majority of installations covered by the contract will be in residential properties, as the UK continues to accelerate the national deployment, ensuring every home and business has a smart meter by 2025.
For Landis+Gyr, the UK’s leading smart meter manufacturer, the announcement is the latest step in an ongoing initiative to ensure all parts of the market have access to SMETS2 metering technology, from the UK’s Large Energy Suppliers all the way through to independent suppliers who are playing an increasingly central part in the smart meter rollout.
Today’s announcement follows a similarly innovative partnership between Landis+Gyr and Calvin Capital announced late last year which will see Landis+Gyr supply up to 2 million SMETS2 meters under a flexible purchasing mechanism. In total, the business has now been mandated to deliver a considerable amount of the of the 53 million smart electricity and gas meters which are expected to be deployed by 2025.
Together with Landis+Gyr’s strong presence in Manchester, this deal further cements the North West of England’s growing position as a hub for R&D and innovation, in particular around metering technology. Manchester-based Smart Choice Metering is one of the major meter asset providers in the North West and will be working with energy suppliers across the region and nationally.
