Smart meters for Russian energy users

ENERGOAUDITCONTROL (EAC), a company specialising in the creation and installation of large-scale metering solutions, is to deploy Echelon’s Networked Energy Services (NES) advanced metering system in Russia. In the first phase of the project approximately 90,000 NES meters and associated software and infrastructure will be deployed to homes and small businesses across Russia, with the potential for up to 275,000 additional meters and associated software and infrastructure in 2008 and 2009.

Echelon’s NES system provides an open, bidirectional, and extensible infrastructure that enables a wide range of utility applications, including two-way automated meter reading, time-of-use pricing, net metering, prepay metering, remote electrical disconnect and reconnect, service limiting, distribution system asset optimisation, electricity outage detection and restoration management, revenue protection, power quality measurement, and tamper detection features. /
