Karlstad’s utilities choose technology from Aidon for the new generation of smart energy system

Energy utilities in Karlstad, Sweden, have chosen Aidon as the provider of the next generation’s smart energy metering system. The contract includes a delivery of ca. 35 000 smart electricity meters, 5 400 district heat meters, the metering value collection as Aidon ACloud SaaS service, as well as Aidon One, a map-based service for a detailed overview on metering points and AMI connectivity.

With this agreement, the two utilities Karlstads Energi and Karlstads El- och Stadsnät join the group of more than 40 Swedish distribution system operators that have chosen Aidon technology.

– Through the new generation metering system we create conditions for putting the customer in focus, as well as provide the opportunity for the next step in the energy transition, says Anders Åkesson, grid manager at Karlstads El- och Stadsnät.

Installations will start in 2021 and are estimated to be completed during 2023.

– With this investment we enable a new, stable and secure metering system. At the same time it also contributes to improved collaboration opportunities between the sister companies of Karlstads Energi. We look forward with confidence to the collaboration with Aidon in the project, says Olof Öberg, head of Energy Services at Karlstads Energi.

– We are very pleased about Karlstad’s trust in Aidon’s competence and technology. With the new solution the companies will get information about their grid status, which will enable an efficient and reliable grid operation. Furthermore, our system platform will provide them with the necessary flexibility and possibility to develop new advanced smart grid functionality, says Bora Heggdal, managing director of Aidon Sweden.
