Essent is the largest energy company in the Netherlands, providing electricity, gas, heat, and other energy services to more than four million customers. The company, an innovator in energy efficiency, created smart meters to help customers monitor how much energy they consume. Data from the meters is automatically sent back to the company via short messages, and Essent uses AWS to handle that data, which is expected to arrive at a rate of 200,000 messages every 10 seconds.
