Greenbird Integration Technology AS, an Oslo, Norway-based smart meter software company, raised US$5m in funding.
The round was led by Statkraft Ventures with participation of ETF Partners.
The company intends to use the funds to expand globally.
Led by Thorsten Heller, CEO, Greenbird provides Metercloud.io and Ghostwriter, which enable utilities to implement flexible IT architectures for modern smart meter operations.
Metercloud.io is an “integration as a service” offering, which efficiently handles metering data and provides connectors to all of the common smart meter software applications.
Ghostwriter simulates smart meters and head end systems before the rollout of the smart meters. This allows utilities to make sure that all business applications are running properly before they start deploying their smart meters.
