LIBERTY LAKE, Wash. -- January 17, 2013

Itron, Inc. (NASDAQ:ITRI) announced today the release of a new thermal energy
meter. The embedded ultrasonic technology will help utilities around the world
more accurately and reliably measure energy in heating and cooling systems as
well as provide data about usage patterns. The Itron  CF-UltraMaxx V meter is
a compact meter with advanced smart metering features for data analysis. It
features a broad dynamic range to measure very high and low energy flow for
residential areas. This new meter is available in capsule or in inline
versions. The capsule version is modular and can be exchanged without removing
the meter housing from the pipes. Both versions are quick and easy to install.

Itron’s latest thermal energy meter provides detailed information about the
operation of heating and cooling systems over time, including flow rate,
volume, consumption and tariffs. It is designed with flexible communications
options and can be tailored to customers’ specifications as well as the
geography of the area where the meter is installed. In addition, the meter
offers two major innovations: a unique removable calculator that can be fixed
on the meter in any position, offering a high level of readability; and a
patented sensor sealing which makes the installation of sensors safer for
engineers by automatically locking the seal so the meter is protected against
fraud.

“The latest innovation, operating range and flexibility of Itron’s compact
thermal energy meter is an exciting new offering for our customers,” said
Gavin Van Tonder, vice president of water marketing for Itron. “With the
advancements in this product, Itron is providing one of the most flexible
thermal energy meters available. The accuracy, reliability and long
life-expectancy of this meter makes it the clear choice among thermal energy
meters currently on the market.”
