Singapore-based EDMI is providing smart meters to CLP Power as part of its smart meter rollout in Hong Kong.
 
EDMI will provide single- and three-phase smart meters to CLP Power. This agreement marks further expansion for EDMI as one of the smart metering providers for residential, commercial and industrial markets across Asia.
 
As a result of rapid population growth and urbanisation in the Asia-Pacific region, digitalisation is now key to provide connectivity and intelligent automation. The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region recognises this and plans to turn Hong Kong into a smart city.
 
To support this vision, CLP Power will install smart meters for all of its customers and provide them with a range of digitalised services to encourage energy saving, and further improve supply reliability.
 
"Smart meters are the foundation of this energy revolution and are therefore an essential component to support Hong Kong's transformation to a smart city," said How New Seng, chief executive officer at EDMI. "We are proud that EDMI's extensive market experience and technical expertise will be a vital element in Hong Kong's first smart meter rollout and support initiated by CLP Power."
 
EDMI is owned by Osaki Electric, a Japanese metering technology provider. EDMI is focused on designing, developing and manufacturing innovative and technologically advanced energy meters and metering systems for the global utility industry. Its metering portfolio includes a range of premium quality metering products, advanced infrastructure and energy management systems.
