Sentec, the smart grid and metering technology company, has been honoured with a Queen’s Award for Enterprise for the third year in a row. The Award is for Innovation, recognising continual innovation and commercialisation, awarded to Sentec for its Mobius(TM) current sensor technology, now used in over 10 million installed electricity meters.
A hat-trick as Sentec wins Queen’s Award for world class smart metering innovation
MobiusTM electricity sensor technology has been used in successful smart meter products for a decade, with more than ten million meters now in the field that incorporate the technology, including Sensus’ iCon A smart electricity meters in the US and OnStream meters in the UK.
Smart electricity meters using Sentec’s Mobius technology provide electricity utility providers and their customers with faster and more accurate information on energy consumption, allowing consumers to benefit from flexible payment tariffs and for utilities to provide a more efficient and reliable service.
Mark England, CEO, commented, “Receiving the Queen’s Award for Enterprise for the third year in a row is truly an endorsement of Sentec’s success in innovating and commercialising our core technologies and I congratulate the whole team for their efforts. The Innovation award is appropriate recognition for Mobius sensors, at the core of over ten million meters with 250 billion service hours across the United States and supporting new products for the UK’s smart meter rollout. This award recognises the increasing commercial and environmental importance of managing our energy networks more efficiently.”
Sentec received the Queen’s Award for Enterprise for Innovation for its Sterling® water flow sensor technology in 2011, demonstrating continued innovation and development in sensor technology, and for International Trade in 2010.
The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise are divided into International Trade, Innovation and Sustainable Development. The Award Scheme, originally known as The Queen’s Award to Industry, was instituted by Royal Warrant in 1966 following the recommendations of a Committee chaired by HRH The Duke of Edinburgh.
