Kamstrup is joining the eMeter Alliance Program as an Integrated Meter Data Management Technology and Developer Partner and will collaborate with eMeter to develop and sell integrated solutions for utility smart grid systems.
The eMeter integrated smart grid ecosystem gives eMeter’s partners the technology and support needed to integrate their solutions with the EnergyIP meter data management information platform.
Henrik Baek Joergensen, Kamstrup’s Senior Product Manager for smart grid, notes, “We have already seen a lot of interest from different markets for a combined eMeter/Kamstrup solution. With the new partnership, utilities will benefit from a standard integration between eMeter’s highly scalable and feature rich solution and Kamstrup’s high-performing AMI – based on proven, wireless technology and quality components designed and manufactured in Denmark.”
eMeter’s integrated smart grid partner ecosystem provides utilities with interoperable smart grid solutions based on industry standards and best practices, improving the integration process and lowering the total cost of ownership. eMeter and Kamstrup will provide each other access to a suite of web services and support including Application Programming Interfaces (API), sample code, demo software licenses and testing programs. The two companies will also make their individual support desks and technical expertise available to the other.
eMeter Vice President of Technology Alliances, Shannon Amerman, adds: “Our Smart Grid ecosystem allows utility customers to choose an interoperable solution that integrates the eMeter EnergyIP platform seamlessly with our partners’ technology,” said A Siemens Business. “This will not only spark mutual success for eMeter and our partners, but will also lead to reduced costs and improved customer satisfaction for our customers.”
