The energy transition starts with a smart meter

With its Energy Strategy 2050, Switzerland is pursuing sustainable change. An optimized CO2 balance and reduced energy consumption contribute added environmental value. Every kilowatt-hour saved has an economic impact on your bank account as well. The switch to smart meters by the end of 2027 is a key milestone on the way to becoming a 2000-watt society. Digital handling of consumption and status data brings advantages – and not only for consumers.

 We connect your smart meter safely. With our innovative solutions, you can join the smart meter ecosystem and benefit from the easiest energy management in Switzerland. As a reliable IoT partner for gas, water and electricity, we are happy to support you in this change

You can connect the digital meters to your Meter Data Management (MDM) system via Sunrise IoT connect. In this way, the data are available for processing in your IT environment.

Advantages and application examples for providers

Until now, meter reading has been a time-consuming and manual process. This is now a thing of the past.  Intelligent energy meters will do the reading for you and transmit valuable data to the control center. This will reduce costs for you and at the same time open up opportunities for new services.

Automatic meter reading eliminates human error completely. Remote monitoring enables proactive fault recognition and easier identification of irregularities. Appropriate measures are taken to react immediately, with the highest level of data security and ensuring the best quality.

The switch to smart meters will increase internal efficiency and optimize processes. At the same time creating added value for your customers. Invoice automation and recommendations for action for end consumers are good examples. You report the costs to your customers in a transparent manner and provide data-based recommendations on the basis of the immediate and predicted energy demand.

Become part of the emerging Smart Energy ecosystem to develop new value-added services. Benefit from new players on the market like building owners and software and device providers. Leverage this potential and position yourself to benefit from new business models , such as internal consumption pools (ZEV).
