Communiqué (en anglais) d'Elster:

"ERDF Selects Elster for Proof-of-Concept Smart Meter
Elster to Extend Life of Linky Smart Meters with New Modular Architecture Designed to Support Future ERDF Smart Grid Initiatives

MAINZ, Germany, Sept. 10

MAINZ, Germany, Sept. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Elster announced today that Electricite Reseau Distribution France (ERDF), a wholly owned subsidiary of the EDF Group and one of the largest electricity distribution networks in the European Union, has selected Elster to help it develop an interoperable and modular Smart Meter to support its future Smart Meter and Smart Grid initiatives.

The ERDF Linky Smart Meters are part of the utility's Linky automated meter management (AMM) system, which is designed to provide advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) services that enable the electricity Smart Grid. The Linky Smart Meters will help ERDF customers control electricity consumption, improve overall energy management and enable the utility to perform remote meter reads.

The Elster proof-of-concept modular Smart Meter will be designed with a dual architecture featuring both a socket and communications module. The Linky smart socket could remain at a customer site for significantly longer than existing technology. Connected to the smart socket, the Linky smart module can be quickly and easily replaced to keep pace with frequent advances in communications technologies. This flexibility extends the life of ERDF Smart Meters, while still delivering the energy efficiency benefits provided by new technologies.

"In an effort to keep pace with new technologies and to provide its customers with the most advanced services, ERDF has selected Elster to develop an innovative, modular Smart Meter," said Frank Hyldmar, executive vice president, electricity, rest of world, Elster. "We are excited to deliver the modular Smart Meters that can power the ERDF Linky AMM system, enabling the electricity Smart Grid in France."

"Elster remains on the cutting-edge of technology development and meter design, delivering new AMI and Smart Grid solutions that enable utilities across the globe to improve energy management and customer service," added Hyldmar.

Elster will develop the modular Smart Meter during the next 11 months, along with another supplier, and several samples will be produced and approved for field-testing by ERDF. By choosing two development partners, ERDF will assure the level of interoperability of the meters, as well as compatibility with the existing Linky AMM system, including integration with the utility's ATOS information system.

The meter concept would then be submitted to the Measuring Instruments Directive (MID) committee for approval. The MID (2004/22/EC) is a directive from the European Union which intends to create a common market for measuring instruments across the 27 countries of the EU. Under the MID, meters which receive MID approval may be used in all EU countries.
