Utilities today face unprecedented challenges and opportunities as they strive to meet the increasing demands of their customers and stakeholders. To meet these demands, they need an advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) ecosystem that can provide reliable and accurate data, support multiple use cases, and generate actionable insights to help them optimize their operations and customer service. But what should be taken into account when building your metering ecosystem? Here are 7 things to consider when building your AMI:
The price increases in energy over the past 12 months have taken many consumers by surprise, contributing significantly to the financial pressure on businesses and householders during the current economic crisis. In the UK, not a day goes by without energy, and specifically the cost of energy, dominating conversations, news reports and media comment.
When France’s biggest electricity distributor, Enedis, launched the “Linky Project” in 2017 to replace 35 million residential meters with smart meters, they were going beyond EU requirements to set the foundation for the country's future smart grid.
Situated near the iconic Corinth Canal, the sprawling 56,000 square meter production facility at Corinth has had an illustrious history on its way to becoming Landis+Gyr's largest smart manufacturing facility in Europe. Yet it had to show resilience to bounce back from tough market conditions in 2012, for a resurgence in production excellence, social impact and environmental contributions.
As one of the most advanced countries in Europe when it comes to digitalization in the energy sector, Finland has adopted a national data hub to centralize information exchange to simplify and speed up daily operations among consumers and grid participants. Kajave Oy is employing the Landis+Gyrs Datahub connector service to transfer electricity consumption data into this information exchange, thus enabling secure, instantaneous access for consumers and grid participants.
Smart meter rollouts are complex projects that impact utility operations from billing to customer services, and from IT operations to network management. Whether it is a first-time installation, a second wave implementation, or a transformational upgrade, building an Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) is a journey. Here are some of the top considerations when building your AMI ecosystem.
