Less Worry, More Success
Linea Distribuzione supplies gas to 260,000 users across northern Italy. After conducting a trial run of our technology, they found that with Itron’s end-to-end solution—which includes smart meters, a fixed network and managed services—operational costs were significantly reduced. With only eight technicians in the field, Linea Distribuzione can worry less about its technology and focus more on business logistics and field operations.
A Million Solutions
Itron and SOCAR deliver the world’s largest gas pre-payment system.
The State Oil Company of the Azerbaijan Republic (SOCAR) had a problem with high fraud, bad debt collections, technical losses and obsolete meters. Itron had a solution—actually, a million of them. Since installing Itron’s gas prepayment system, which includes more than one million smart gas communication modules, SOCAR has seen improved revenue collection, better recovery of old debt and an improved level of customer service. This is the largest offline gas pre-payment system in the world.
A More Efficient State
“Itron has been a great partner to SCG for many years. Our relationship combined with Itron’s broad portfolio of proven, reliable AMI technologies, sensors and controls made Itron the logical choice.”

Gas Beyond the Grid
Itron delivers gas solutions for a changing world—ones that can complement the electricity grid and deliver sustainable, cost-effective outcomes. Learn how EnviroFuel is leveraging Itron technology in South Africa.
A looming energy shortage has the potential to stifle economic growth in South Africa. To prevent this and promote growth in Waterfall City, EnviroFuel, a utility in South Africa, sought an alternative energy source to meet their needs. By using liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) for 70% of household energy, EnviroFuel realized that it could free up over 300 MVA of electricity, greatly reduce the overall carbon footprint of Waterfall City and help customers save money on energy bills.
Itron deployed a versatile, cost-effective and safe prepayment solution—which includes 2,000 smart meters and full-featured online payment system that allows anyone with a smartphone to pay for natural gas as they need it—as part of EnviroFuel's green consciousness and sustainability strategy. As a result of this partnership, Itron became the first company to provide prepaid metering solutions to the largest user of LPG piped gas in South Africa.
The Power of Storable Energy
Natural gas as an energy resource has its advantages—it's clean, safe, efficient and readily available in many markets around the world. Gas is also storable.
As more and more renewable energy sources are integrated into the mix, capturing the energy produced by solar panels or wind farms and making it available when it's needed is critical. Power to gas (P2G) is new technology that converts electrical power into gas fuel, helping to manage excess or off-peak electricity so that power generated by wind or solar arrays can be used later to balance the load on the grid or meet increased demand.
