Innogy Selects NET2GRID's Technology for Energy Insight Services in Germany
Germany is preparing for the large-scale installation of digital meters starting in 2018. NET2GRID has worked since 2016 with innogy to develop a plug-and-play gateway to enable consumers to securely capture Big Data through the wireless HAN interface of the digital meters. The SmartBridge is a smart meter WiFi dongle with smart home capabilities, enabling meter commissioning by the consumer while meeting strict German security and privacy standards. It reads and stores usage data at the highest available resolution and pre-processes the data for analysis.
This powerful infrastructure leads to detailed, disaggregated, and itemized insights for consumers and their energy suppliers. This technology is bridging the gap between an itemized bill and smart home."
