Echelon recently won the 2013 European Smart Metering Award for top Network and Communications company in the Solution Provider category. Echelon and the other winners (in seven other solution provider categories and three utility categories) were presented their awards at an exclusive gala dinner in London at the close of the Smart Metering UK and Europe Summit 2013.
The European Smart Metering Awards are determined by independent judges who include utility industry experts from a range of European companies. In our award citation, they said they selected Echelon as “a company that surpassed all others [in their category] due to their strong focus on consumer outputs and extensive use of open-source technologies.”
It’s always a privilege to be honored by your peers, and especially in a forum as prestigious as the European Smart Metering Awards. We take it as encouragement that Echelon is on the right path with our smart metering, smart grid, and other grid modernization solutions, and with our open-standard, multi-application energy control networking platform. Whether we win awards or not, though, Echelon is committed to delivering innovative solutions that help utilities solve their business problems and ‘keep the lights on’ for their customers across the globe.
