Due to Swedish legislative requirements* introduced in the late 1990s, E.ON conducted a variety of installation projects that would ensure its smart meter services to customers. EU requirements**, combined with future demands by Nordic legislation (for example around a common Nordic retail market***), changes the future role of Network companies including E.ON’s power grid. Based on these changes, Capgemini has developed a solution enabling E.ON to consolidate its current smart metering services in an efficient and quality assured manner.
The contract includes management of just under half of E.ON’s portfolio of smart meters in Sweden and encompasses a range of services including regular and scheduled meter reading, field services, service desk, management reporting, data centre hosting and application management. Capgemini will also be responsible for managing subcontractors, such as telecommunications, software providers and field service providers.
Capgemini’s solution is modern, flexible and scalable enabling E.ON to install modern meters supporting new smart features. It is also an open solution simplifying future procurements for E.ON power grid.
“We look forward to further strengthening and developing our great cooperation with E.ON and we are delighted that they renew their confidence in us. This win is one in a series of major recent successes in the Utilities sector, demonstrating our continued success and momentum in the Smart Energy market worldwide”,, said Peter Harris, European lead for Smart Energy Services, at Capgemini.
“We are happy to have signed this deal with Capgemini. They have earlier proved their good ability to deliver qualified energy services and it will now be exciting to further develop the latest technology with smart meters together with them, says Per-Olof Lindholm, CEO at E.ON Elnät Sverige AB.
