Utilities across Europe and North America are mid-stream their Smart Meter implementations. There are obvious benefits to Smart Meter network including remote meter reading, remote connect/disconnect, and outage alarms. With many Smart Meter projects, coming to full customer base installations, the next opportunities lie in integrating the wealth of Smart Meter to your operational system.
Giving your operators the opportunity to poll meters real-time on outage checks, voltage level, or kWh consumption is the natural step forward. Our team has a long history with Smart Meter deployments. We have worked on Smart Meter technology pilots to full customer base roll-outs, including CIS and OMS integration with Smart Meter, process re-engineering and project management.
At a large utility in California, our consultants partnered with the utility to define their end-to-end meter install to end of life process design including outage processing, billing, to meter decommissioning and also designed their CIS & OMS upgrades to align with Smart Meter technology and business requirements.
InfraGrid understands the high and low level benefits Smart Meter brings to the utility and the organization and process changes that follow. We partner with your team to deliver your holistic vision on your Smart Meter venture and go beyond our services to point foreseeable challenges in your implementation.
