MicroEJ, a provider of software containers for IoT and embedded devices, and Landis+Gyr, a global provider of energy management technologies have announced collaboration to expand the app development environment for the next generation of smart meters. This collaboration establishes the digital foundation for more efficient and sustainable energy management.

Through software containerisation, MicroEJ Virtual Execution Environment provides an app operating system for Landis+Gyr’s Revelo meter. Revelo’s waveform sampling makes it a highly accurate sensor and supports software applications for decision making at the grid edge.

Recognising this impact, Frost & Sullivan awarded Landis+Gyr the 2022 Global AMI Company of the Year Award, an acknowledgement that highlights the potential of this platform to radically transforming how utilities operate.

Partnership provides better energy management

With rising consumer expectations for fast, personalised, and secure energy management, utility providers must maximise customer service capabilities at the grid edge. Revelo supports grid and consumer applications running on the MicroEJ platform that both optimise management of the grid and improve consumer engagement through:

As Todd Bushey, vice president, Technologies at Landis+Gyr observes, “The next generation of meter technologies are a critical next step for energy management. Revelo and its related future-ready utility IoT platform provide the edge intelligence and sensing function to provide utilities and consumers with the capabilities to reach their goals. The flexibility of the MicroEJ environment enables us to provide an effective platform for app enablement and expansion in the future.”

Fred Rivard, CEO of MicroEJ, confirms, “MICROEJ VEE flagship software containers power the digital transformation of future-proof energy meters to an unprecedented level, enhancing services and energy management over the life of a smart meter. This turnkey solution supports the customisation and personalisation of smart meter applications to address new consumer needs, thereby achieving a sustainable and cost-effective platform for future development.”

MicroEJ will showcase the Revelo product platform at 2023 CES Unveiled on Tuesday, January 3, and at the MicroEJ CES Booth #52339 in the Venetian Expo from January 5-8. Contact us for a preview or to learn more about MicroEJ and Landis+Gyr partnership.
