Jönköping Energi Nät chooses Quant for the introduction of new generation electricity meters
Rejlers Embriq AB has signed an agreement with Energi Nät AB for a new central system – Quant. Jönköping Energi Nät AB is preparing for the complete replacement of electricity meters at its 57,000 customers, in line with new functional requirements to be met by 2025. The new system from Rejlers provides a platform for flexible management of all data from electricity, district heating, water and gas meters, and will be an important support for the introduction of the new generation of smart electricity meters.
“We see that Quant meets our metering service’s future need to be the modern and digital energy company we wish. Quant will give the business the support we need to streamline our work, such as monitoring with intelligent maps, non-conformance management and integration with work order systems,” says Lise-Lotte Melin, head of metering services at Jönköping Energi Nät AB.
Another important factor has been that Quant is based on a modern integration engine that gives the business better management of data flows to and from systems, as well as the opportunity for communication with future digital components.
“Jönköping Energi Nät AB is an important customer for Rejlers. We have collaborated for a long time on a number of different projects and are proud to now deliver Quant. We look forward to providing know-how and continuing to help Jönköping Energi Nät AB to streamline for the future, says Tomas Esselin Marketing Manager, Rejlers Embriq AB.
New functional requirements lie behind the change
In the next few years, Jönköping Energi Nät will replace all the electricity meters at its 57,000 customers. The reason is new functional requirements that must be met by 1 January 2025. With the new meters, customers will be able to see detailed information about energy consumption via an interface direct from the meter. The new meters will also provide a more efficient power grid operation and automatic recording of service interruptions. The new generation of smart electricity meters supports the energy transition in society and provides the conditions for users to become more involved and active.
