Hong Kong has ambitions to become a “smart city”. The award of a contract to integrated energy management solutions provider Landis+Gyr is a step in that direction. The Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) program includes the rolling-out of Landis+Gyr’s Gridstream® solution platform comprising Landis+Gyr smart meters, communications infrastructure, head-end system and meter data management system over the next two years. Additionally, the contract provides an opportunity to help HK Electric optimise the value of its grid assets by leveraging Landis+Gyr’s Advanced Grid Analytics for selected use cases.

“We are proud to support HK Electric with their digital transformation through the adoption of AMI technology. With our best-in-class experience in AMI solutions and a strong Hong Kong based solutions and delivery team, we look forward to helping HK Electric to meet its future sustainable development goals,” said Steve Jeston, Executive Vice President, Asia Pacific at Landis+Gyr.

HK Electric is committed to protecting the environment and supporting sustainable development by progressively increasing the use of natural gas to generate electricity. In recent years, the utility has placed greater emphasis on promoting innovation as an integral part of its corporate strategy through the adoption of new technology. Implementing smart metering for its customers is one of the initiatives intended to transform Hong Kong into a smart city.

“AMI is an important technology for HK Electric. Not only does it allow us to improve our customer services and enable our customers to better manage their electricity consumption, it also enhances our visibility into the grid for better monitoring and control, which moves us closer to a smart grid” said Mr. Raymond Choi, General Manager (Customer Services) of HK Electric.

This upgrade is essentially for Hong Kong.  there are two companies HK Electric in this article and CLP.  Lots happening in the backend to use this data which is where the "rubber hits the road"

What sort of data uses are you particularly eager to see Hong Kong utilize, Chris?
