Itron, Inc. (NASDAQ:ITRI), a world-leading technology and services company dedicated to the resourceful use of energy and water, announced today that Gaz reseau Distribution France (GrDF), the main natural gas utility in France and 100 percent-owned subsidiary of GDF Suez, has selected Itron as a main supplier of Gazpar smart gas meters for its Smart Gas Meter project. The project will create smart metering excellence in France to benefit GrDF customers, improve operational efficiency and create jobs.
With this contract, Itron will supply up to 3.7 million smart gas meters with integrated radios between 2016 and 2022.

Itron will supply smart gas meters that are reliable and robust, meeting the requirements outlined by GrDF.
“Itron is honored to be a part of such a significant smart metering project in France.
