eMeter Corporation was founded in 1999 by Cree Edwards and Larsh Johnson after having worked together to found CellNet Data Systems. Their idea was to build a company that would be able to manage all of the data that was be generated by the meters and turn it into information that could be used across the utility. Their solution—eMeter EnergyIP—is a robust, intelligent, and comprehensive product that eases the challenges utilities face when deploying and managing these complex Smart Grid systems.
In the last decade, the eMeter team has worked with forward-thinking gas, water, and electric utilities worldwide to enable them to unleash the full benefits of the Smart Grid with eMeter’s market-leading technology. They have built a reputation for innovation, unparalleled experience, and domain expertise in the energy industry with customers who range from large investor-owned utilities to tiny municipalities.
In January 2012, Siemens added eMeter Corporation to the Smart Grid Division of the Siemens Infrastructure & Cities Sector, creating eMeter, A Siemens Business. eMeter and Siemens’ Smart Grid products and solutions represent the only end-to-end Smart Grid solution with industry-leading innovation and scalability. Siemens provides the investment needed to widely offer the innovative and competitive solutions that have defined the company.
