This afternoon at DistribuTECH 2015, Itron celebrated our Frost & Sullivan 2014 North American Smart City Company of the Year Award with an award presentation and reception. Frost & Sullivan Principal Consultant Farah Saeed presented the award to Russ Vanos, Itron’s senior vice president, strategy and corporate development. Itron is excited to receive this award as it recognizes our continued commitment to innovation, our smart city growth strategy and excellence in implementation.

Energy, water and the smart grid are critical to creating smart cities. Our technologies and solutions at Itron help to provide the foundation for smart cities, by enabling cities, utilities and citizens to use information, data and communications to improve their sustainability and more resourcefully use their energy and water.

A few examples of our technologies that help create smart cities include:
• Itron Riva, our new edge intelligence platform, which will connect millions devices in cities and deliver revolutionary edge intelligence and adaptive communications technology to enable automated decision-making
• Itron Insights App, which allows city managers to track energy costs, water revenue and expenses, and CO2 impact
• Itron City App, which fosters collaboration through citizen reporting and tracking of city-related issues such as leaks etc.

We’ve also worked with several key smart city projects in different places such as Smart Detroit; SmartCity Malta; Tianjin, China; Envision Charlotte, Kalgoorlie, Australia; and Glendale, California, providing technology to help them more resourcefully use their electricity, gas and water.
