Madrid, November 20, 2006 – Telvent GIT S.A. (Nasdaq: TLVT), the Global RealTime IT Company participated in the eighth annual “Metering Europe 2006” exhibition, held in Copenhagen, Denmark, on October 10, 11 and 12.

The exhibition, attended by more than 1,300 participants from 64 countries, featured leading-edge energy metering systems and technologies for the electricity, water, and gas sectors, and is part of a series of global events held annually in Europe, Asia, North America, South America, Africa, the Middle East, Australia, and New Zealand.

Telvent exhibited its latest automatic energy metering technology, the Telvent Metering System (TMS) solution. The Company’s booth attracted great attention due to the real-time connection of meter panels demonstrating the system as it is currently implemented in Sweden for the Vattenfall utility. This project, which consists of the development and installation of 300,000 automatic meters in the homes of Vattenfall customers living in the Central, Northern and Western regions of Sweden, has the flexibility to allow for a potential increase of up to 700,000 meters.

The TMS solution enables real-time remote acquisition of electricity consumption information, charge management, and data collection. In addition, the system enables real-time billing, charge control, and bill forecasting. The technology includes meters that utilize solutions developed by Echelon Corporation in North America and the Telvent-developed management software, Titanium.

According to Telvent’s chairman and chief executive officer, Manuel Sanchez Ortega, “The automatic metering of electric energy consumption is going to revolutionize the way in which consumers relate with their energy providers”.

Metering Europe 2006 brought together companies from all over the world that are vastly experienced in the sector and who presented the latest technologies and solutions applicable to metering systems. This forum, of enormous importance in the energy sector, continues to grow every year and is now a meeting point for experts interested in the sector’s latest trends.
