Personal Energy Management
We help you improve satisfaction and efficiency with tools that empower customers to monitor and manage their energy consumption
Landis+Gyr Personal Energy Management solutions enable utilities to provide accurate and informative consumption and billing data online and via In-Home Displays.
Reduce peak loads by up to 30%
Greater energy consumption awareness and variable tariff pricing create incentives for consumers to reduce peak load demand, and provide utilities with the confidence to reduce excess capacity margins via Demand Response programs. The Landis+Gyr AMM solution can take this further with the addition of Load Control that allows utilities to actively shed load when necessary. Trials have indicated that Landis+Gyr Demand Response technology can reduce peak loads by up to 30%.
Variable tariff pricing can be implemented through fixed Time-Of-Use tariff rates that alleviate predictable peak demands, or through variable pricing systems that also allow utilities to respond to irregular and unpredictable demand patterns.
Traditional metering solutions with built-in Time-Of-Use tariff rates incentivise more efficient consumption behaviour through post-event customer billing, and smooth daily demand patterns to eliminate the worst effects of predictable peak demand.
Real-time pricing through in-home display or via the web
Variable pricing systems are a more sophisticated response to peak demand capacity constraints. They allow real-time pricing adjustments to be communicated to consumers through In-Home Displays and the Internet. Real-time pricing enables utilities to respond to unpredictable or irregular peak demand, as well as the more predictable peak demand patterns. Real-time pricing enables shorter control response cycles, allowing utilities to manage demand more accurately.
With consumer agreement, Landis+Gyr smart meters can also enable utilities to execute load control programs that quickly and reliably allow command and control of load shedding across a range of consumer appliances (e.g. air conditioning, heating, pool pumps and domestic hot water).
