Fortum Norway awarded a smart grid project to Echelon partner Telvent to deploy Echelon's smart metering system to Fortum Norway's 100,000 electricity customers, Echelon announced today. Fortum is making the first significant deployment decision that directly addresses Norway's new push to spread smart metering to the country's 2.6 million electricity customers by the end of 2016.

Volume deployments of Echelon's Networked Energy Services (NES) smart grid infrastructure system are targeted to begin in August 2013 and go through 2015.
