The objective is to create smart energy networks that are able to manage large amounts of data. As a result, opportunities for efficient grid and energy consumption management, as well as seamless integration of micro generated, renewable energy sources will be realised, the statement added.

Rajiv Sawhney, the managing director for Middle East at Landis+Gyr, said: "Ericsson’s expertise complements our own, allowing us to expand our smart products and services into the Middle East, thereby empowering utility providers with our ever evolving, future proof services portfolio".

Ericsson said it has created a partnership with Landis+Gyr, to address the Middle East's Smart Metering and Smart Grid transformation projects. The Swedish electronics giant already have a significant presence in the region with almost 4,000 employees.

Rafiah Ibrahim, the president of Ericsson (Middle East and East Africa) said: "Mobility and connectivity is driving the transformation to the networked society in the Middle East, and cities across the region are aware now - more than ever - of the importance of sustainability. In partnership with Landis+Gyr, we are able to deliver smart solutions to the energy sector, allowing utility companies to improve energy consumption and to use connectivity for sustainability."

Middle East utilities will benefit from the smart metering solutions offered by this partnership, by delivering key data needed for interactive relationships with customers. The joint effort focuses on enhancing energy efficiency of utilities in the region by providing better service standards.

As a result of this, utilities will get various deployment and support options now to use analytics applications for revenue protection, asset management, optimization of renewable integration and improving power quality.
Advanced analytics help utilities correlate data collected from the smart grid network with other enterprise data to improve asset management and streamline operations.

This partnership appears to have all the ingredients needed, for the Middle East to make the most of the considerable smart grid infrastructure investment we have seen in recent years. The Middle East region continues to take positive steps to a smarter urban future.
