Washington-based Itron is expanding its long-term collaboration with Microsoft to speed up cloud adoption and the next generation of consumer and grid edge solutions for the utility and smart cities industries.

This unique partnership amalgamates Itron’s leading energy management solutions and Microsoft’s leading cloud solutions to transform how end-users perceive and manage their energy, and how utilities meet the demands of a rapidly changing industry.

Itron is working with Microsoft to develop solutions that deliver unprecedented insights and benefits for utilities, communities, and enterprises to reach their goals, including grid resilience, consumer engagement, operational efficiency, and decarbonization.

“The collaboration between Itron and Microsoft will enable utilities and smart cities to take advantage of cloud computing technology—in particular, edge computing—to accelerate cloud-native analytics, distribution automation, carbon reporting and provide an overall more flexible, scalable system that supports a distributed, resilient energy grid,” said Darryl Willis, CVP Worldwide Energy Industry, Microsoft.

Focused on security, reliability, and value, the partnership will address industry critical challenges, such as greenhouse gas emissions, carbon tracking, zero-carbon goals, clean energy matching, data accessibility, and operational insights.

This consists of network visibility, asset management, outage management, insights into electric vehicles (EV), and distributed energy resource loads essential to enabling a decarbonized grid.

The collaboration will deliver integrated solutions to measure, report and accelerate the path to net-zero for utilities and their customers. 

Increasing the number of cloud-ready solutions for the next-generation technology stack will allow the collaboration will enable faster deployment, increase cost-effectiveness, and enhance security and resilience.

With Microsoft, Itron is accelerating the extension of its leading Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI), data management, and analytics solutions to the cloud in global markets.

The expanded collaboration will enable Itron to pinpoint utility and city customers across the globe who can avail the benefits of their existing solutions and reach global enterprises with critical energy and decarbonization requirements.
