The combination of these smart grid technologies enables a true two-way dialogue that will engage the consumer and utility and provide them with the necessary tools to use energy more efficiently.”

“This is yet another milestone in our ongoing partnership with Comverge,” said Philip Mezey, senior vice president and chief operating officer, Itron North America. “Integration of our smart grid solution with the Apollo platform puts Itron and Comverge at the forefront of the AMI market, enabling a sophisticated solution for utilities that are seeking fiscally and environmentally responsible ways for customers to respond to peak demand periods.”
