Itron and Utilidata will showcase the power of grid-edge meter applications at DistribuTECH, the utility industry’s leading transmission and distribution conference and exhibition in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Using its voltage optimization capabilities, Utilidata has written the first third-party distributed intelligence application on meters within Itron’s OpenWay Riva IoT solution. This technology will help electric utilities modernize the grid, enable greater efficiency, provide connectivity and deliver cost savings.

In the first-ever demo of this ground-breaking technology, representatives from Utilidata will showcase the application in Itron’s booth at DistribuTECH, #10115. The interactive booth demo will highlight how signal processing, embedded in the meter, enables agile grid management and operations through real-time responses to precise conditions and variables. As booth visitors adjust meter voltage, they will see how the technology reacts instantaneously and optimizes energy delivery. Additionally, visitors to the booth will learn how seamlessly this technology integrates into existing infrastructure, maximizing grid investments and powering a new approach to smart grid deployments. The demo will simulate a reduction and increase in voltage supplied in order to optimize grid performance and reliability, meet energy efficiency goals, integrate Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) and save energy.
