Itron Innovator Award 2021

Itron Innovator award

Calling all Smart City and Utility Innovators!

We're excited to open nominations for the Itron Innovator Award. This award recognizes a utility or city customer that has leveraged our partner enablement programs to deliver a breakthrough solution that solves challenges in energy/water efficiency and smart communities.

Itron's Partner Enablement Program brings together a network of people, technologies and insight to solve problems and innovate rapidly to create solutions that improve resource efficiencies, enhance safety, and connect communities.

The winning solution should demonstrate an Itron customer’s use of ecosystem tools and services such as development kits and innovation challenges or the customer’s selection of a partner that has done so. The solution must also be successfully integrated with Itron technology — either networks, back-office software or our distributed intelligence platform. Preference will be given to solutions that are delivering quantifiable outcomes.

The winner will be announced at Itron Inspire 2021 and receive global recognition and promotion through:
  • Press release promoted on and our social media channels
  • Blog post and promotion on
  • Case Study (written and/or video) produced and promoted on
  • Ability to promote the award on your channels

Are you or do you know a customer who's pushing the envelope of what's possible with Itron technology? Submit a nomination for a deserving Itron customer and their project by August 13, 2021 to be considered for this award.
