London, UK, 16 May 2016 - Amber Rudd MP, The UK Secretary of State for Energy and
Climate Change, has visited EDMI Europe’s Research and Development facility in
Reading. EDMI, a global smart meter solution provider welcomed Amber Rudd and
other members of the Department of Energy and Climate Change for a tour of the
premises which were opened in 2013. As part of the visit, the group were shown
the state-of-the-art testing facilities and introduced to team members who are
integral to the development of the Communications Hub and smart meters.
Energy Secretary Amber Rudd said, “Technology companies
like EDMI are crucial to the success of the smart meter rollout in Great
Britain. I was particularly impressed with the level of investment that EDMI
has committed so far towards the research and development of smart meters for
the rollout, which will put consumers in control of their energy use, helping
them to save energy and money.”
EDMI has expanded rapidly over the past few years to
support market requirements and will be investing further in the UK and Europe
over the coming months.

excellent work being carried out by our team in Reading."
