Iskraemeco has recently been awarded the highest recognition for innovation by the Slovenian Chamber of Commerce and Industry – the Golden Innovation Award. The award-winning smart meter platform, which is based on an innovative modular approach, has been recognized as the best innovation at the national level. Iskraemeco’s AM550 meter, the first product that uses the newly developed platform, is already an important element of many smart metering projects worldwide, including major projects in the Netherlands and Austria.
For the fifteenth year in a row, outstanding innovations from Slovenia were judged in the context of a national competition for the country’s best innovation. The award ceremony was attended by representatives of Slovenia’s government, influential businessmen and specialists. Iskraemeco outlined the benefits of its smart metering platform in a short TED Talk.
Iskraemeco’s smart electricity meter platform enables simple integration of advanced smart functionalities into a smart grid concept and focuses on key challenges that utilities are facing when making a transition to a smart grid. It includes the basic functional requirements of smart metering such as: the availability of measuring data, remote reading, secure two-way communication, and easy and cost-effective adaptation to national markets.
The award-winning platform fully conforms to strict security and privacy requirements in the metering industry and enables utilities to minimise their maintenance and operation costs. The AM550 follows the sustainable Fair Meter approach that focuses on sustainable development in metering and aims to implement a completely transparent supply chain. The basic principles of the initiative are to ensure compliance with the existing labour standards and conformity and transparency of the used materials.
