Smart Energy International, a global publication and web portal, has re-branded to Metering & Smart Energy International in a bid to expand its offering to include smart grid technology, as well as smart cities, homes, cars and regulation.
According to Claire Volkwyn, managing editor of the newly branded Metering & Smart Energy International magazine and portal: “The metering sector has evolved and we are seeing more communication and digitisation of technologies into this traditionally conservative sector.
"We have reflected this change in Smart Energy International through an extension of our name to include these developments, with the magazine now being called Metering & Smart Energy International.”
Ms Volkwyn says the response from the industry has been very positive, “and we are confident that this is the way forward and that aligning our website brand is now vital.
"While our distribution and readership has grown along with the coverage of the magazine, the disconnect between our magazine and website content and branding was problematic.”
The URL of the website will continue as www.smart-energy.com but, she explains: “Our readers will notice a step change in the content and expanded coverage we are now going to be offering.
"We have a few other very exciting initiatives up our sleeves, including a totally new website, which we hope to launch no later than end October 2015.”
