In December 2017, after an extensive phase of lab testing, we started our first pilot project with one of Berlin’s leading housing companies with experience in both energy and digital infrastructure. For this pilot, METR provided an IoT gateway with higher data protection to the housing company. It was a notable success: our modern devices were installed in several complex buildings and worked perfectly to read heating consumption data and securely provide data back to the billing provider. Coupled with submetering, this innovation ultimately benefits residents with fair, more efficient billing. We are excited to have such a significant housing customer at this early stage of production!
