Experience the future of the smart grid with Elster at this year's European Utility Week

Elster, the leading provider of smart grid solutions, will be showcasing its expanded portfolio at this year's European Utility Week exhibition, held in Amsterdam, 4-6 November. With utilities facing a period of unprecedented change, Elster will be demonstrating how the depth and breadth of its solutions can simplify their journey.


The grid is evolving in different ways and at different speeds, and utilities face a daunting challenge of evolving with it," says Kim Nrgaard, Global Head of Solutions, Elster. "We have a long history in providing hardware and software solutions for the smart grid, but new questions are going to be asked of utilities: Is the grid secure, flexible and adaptable enough to accommodate different needs and energy mixes? We already have an unrivalled track record in meeting the needs of utilities today. But we are also looking to the future with new software and service offerings that will help provide answers to these pressing questions.'

As the nature of the grid evolves, utilities face an increasing deluge of metering data. Turning this data into unified utility intelligence will be essential. To enable this, Elster is building out its core competencies of smart meters and smart grid software with leading innovations such as the EIServer 9.1 meter data collection and management platform launched earlier this year. Elster's software and solutions can also be supplemented by a network of value-add selected partners, who can provide complementary products, thereby broadening the Elster overall solution offering.

We're excited to be able to show people where we're going," adds Dimitri Degraeve, Global Head of Product Management Software and Services. "By offering unified, smarter and more agile software, complemented with best-in-class partners and value added services, Elster is providing a future proof solution to its customers. This strategy ensures we remain the partner of choice for utilities looking to lead the way to a smarter grid.'
