"Many of our customers have first-hand experience with the value these apps bring to their existing technology deployments. Our goal is to make it easier for developers and utilities to create, upload and run apps on their devices," said John Radgowski, Vice President of Portfolio Management at Landis+Gyr. "Over time, utilities will be able to access and share apps through the App Marketplace to take advantage of new ways to best utilize technology for energy management."
