Renesas offers measurement solutions, power line communication (PLC), and Sub-GHz wireless communication solutions for utility meters (power meters, gas meters, and water meters) that play an important role in energy infrastructure. We have a track record of shipping more than 600 million units* for utility meters.

We are also actively working to formulate standards as a board member of the international communication standard alliances (G3-PLC, PRIME, Wi-SUN).

We aim to provide optimal semiconductor solutions to meet the demands of communication technologies for smart meters and demands to monitor, manage, and control energy infrastructures intelligently.
