Is rolling out, maintaining, and upgrading your metering infrastructure or operating it becoming too complex and expensive for your organization? Is end-to-end security in metering infrastructure an area of concern? Does your staff need to focus on core business more than managing IT systems and infrastructure? Getting it managed by skilled experts dedicated to AMI-System operations, may be the answer.
Finland is one of the most advanced countries in Europe when it comes to digitalization in the energy sector. With 250,000 km of low-voltage networks and more than 3.7 million energy metering points, Finland is a European veteran in smart metering – and a trendsetter in the adoption of the Metering as a Service model.
A key challenge in the digitization of the energy industry is to build and manage intelligent infrastructures that are flexible, efficient, and secure. This, however, changes the way and the scope of a utility’s work: the deployment, operation, and development of a smart metering system with devices, communication, software, and possible additional applications might be opening up gaps when it comes to time, resources and skills. This is where an As-a-Service approach comes into play.
