Metropolis was this week presented with the Innovation of the Year Award at the 2012 Australia & New Zealand Smart Metering Awards held in Sydney.

The awards recognise companies that play a defining role in moving the smart metering industry forward and focuses particularly on outstanding achievements in technology innovation and customer service.

The independent judging panel was made up of industry professionals and energy company executives involved with major smart metering projects across Europe.

Metropolis won the award for its innovative Critical Peak Price messaging system, which allows retailers to initiate and broadcast price warning alerts to customers via email, SMS, telephone voice broadcast, and to in-home display units – enabling electricity consumers to modify their consumption behaviour in order to avoid higher prices.

This summer Metropolis has issued over 20,000 individual alerts. 

Subsequent collection of 30-minute metering data from Metropolis’s extensive network of residential smart meters allows retailers to assess consumer response to price signals in comparison to smart metered customers that do not receive pricing alerts.

The system has also been adapted to provide consumers with alerts relating to energy usage caps, solar generation thresholds and meter alarms following the daily collection of smart metering data.

Metropolis is proud to have been selected for the award and would like to thank all those in the Australian industry that have supported us over the past 5-years.

There is no doubt that creativity is the most important human resource of all. Without creativity, there would be no progress, and we would be forever repeating the same patterns.
