Headquartered in San Mateo, eMeter has emerged as one of the leading smart grid companies in Silicon Valley. eMeter’s software helps utilities manage the data they collect from electric, gas and water meters, and turns that data into useful information for utility operators and consumers alike. A privately held company, eMeter is backed by Foundation Capital and Sequoia Capital, with 40 utility customers around the world, including municipal utilities like Silicon Valley Power in Santa Clara, Bluebonnet Electric Cooperative in Texas, and the Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO), which manages Ontario’s electricity system.
Taiwan’s Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) has selected eMeter’s EnergyIP information platform and customer Web portal for use in its upcoming Smart Grid pilot program. ITRI, a research organization mandated to strengthen the technological competitiveness of Taiwan, says Energy IP was chosen for its reliability and scalability, and proven success in the market.
