Russian utility Elektroset expects to make savings of more than €10 million over the next six years due to the successful implementation of a smart metering system. 

Elekroset, which supplies power to the Vologda Oblast region in the north-east of Russia comprising 330,000 residents and industries, has recorded a major reduction in losses and an increase in capacity to supply more power to customers since implementing a smart metering system.

Slovenian smart meter manufacturer Iskraemeco developed and manufactured the complete soft and hardware solution including meters, concentrators and software, SEP2W.
