Navigant Research: Itron, with OpenWay Riva™, is the industry leader in Field Area Networking
Better Business Outcomes
Active Grid meets IoT
Active + Interoperable
OpenWay helps Duke Energy in the quest for smart grid interoperability.
Leading Advancements in Interoperability
Duke Energy's Coalition of the Willing initiative features the OpenWay solution to monitor changing grid conditions, resulting from increased distributed energy resources. The COW-II is focused on building microgrids that are more simple and cost effective to operate. They do this by enabling advanced interoperability among disparate monitoring and control systems.
New challenges require new thinking. Itron's OpenWay Riva IoT solution redefines what is possible in grid operations by combining reliable, high-performance communications with distributed intelligence in meters and edge devices. For the first time, devices can analyze data in real time and take action in response to rapidly changing grid conditions.
Customer Success Story
Achieve a Balanced Grid
Make Solar Work
Integrating renewables? Learn how Itron is factoring intermittent solar production into energy forecasts.
With the exponential growth of solar, the importance of an accurate energy demand forecast has never been greater. Itron forecasters have developed a new forecasting framework and software that accurately predicts the load volatility caused by the intermittency of widespread distributed energy resources so reserve generation can be scheduled much more cost effectively. Learn more about Energy Forecasting Solutions.
Manage Peak Loads
From grid stability to the cost of peaker plants, the stakes are high when managing peak load. Itron smart metering and MDM systems pioneered scalable, mass-market dynamic pricing and demand response programs at some of the nation's largest utilities. The multi-application network infrastructure and the distributed intelligence of OpenWay Riva enable you to precisely target demand response and load control events.
Now, you can deliver more predictable results and better outcomes than ever before with smart solutions from Itron.
