The public works department of Erding, Germany is implementing a pilot installation that will consolidate and report data to homeowners about their energy and utility usage, including electricity, gas, water, and heating. The program uses GE smart grid technologies to provide 33,000 Erding citizens with information enabling them to make decisions based on their complete utility consumption.

"We are developing a complete picture of our energy and resource usage to help us become more efficient providers and consumers of energy,” said Walter Huber, general manager of Stadtwerke Erding. “What we are learning will help us formulate practical, effective, and timely programs to reduce our carbon footprint without sacrificing lifestyle.”

The smart meters are connected to a central office for analysis and planning via a data concentrator, providing data to optimize usage efficiency and minimizing waste. Benchmarking data from last year will contribute to emissions and efficiency programs in 2010 and beyond.
