Annual Awards

Itron Innovator Award 2020

Calling all Smart City and Utility Innovators!

To recognize customers that leverage our partner enablement programs and ecosystem partners to source innovation, we are excited to announce that we are accepting nominations for the annual Itron Innovator Award. The award will be presented to an Itron customer who has taken advantage of our partner ecosystem to create a breakthrough solution in the smart utility and/or smart city space.

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 the 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 awarded at our virtual Itron Utility Week 2020 and:
  • Be recognized on, our blog and through a press release.
  • Have a case study produced and promoted on
  • Be able to promote the award on their own as well.
