After successful implementations across Europe, the PRIME Standard continues its expansion on a global scale. Large scale deployments in Lebanon set first milestones in the Middle-East market and raised attention at utilities in the region. An important contributor with deep knowledge about the local infrastructure, network topologies and the needs of utilities is El Sewedy Electrometer, market leader in providing state of the art Metering solutions and energy management services. Joining the Alliance in 2012, El Sewedy Electrometer is part of the Board of Directors and Principal member today and heavily involved in the strategical and technological evolvement of the PRIME standard. With operations in Africa, India and the Americas, El Sewedy EMG is – among the other members – an important asset towards the global adaptation and acceptance of PRIME PLC solutions.
