Next Generation Advanced Metering Infrastructure System Design and Utilization: Case Studies in Utility Innovation
In this research, EPRI canvassed utilities for innovative applications of advanced metering infrastructure data and examined a subset of the applications—what data is used, for what purpose, and the business impacts.
This report examines aspects of management of advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) data in the electric power industry, including practices, system architecture, applications, data characteristics, and data policies. It draws on input from utility personnel that work with AMI data.
Advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) supports communication between utilities and customers through smart meters, communications networks, and data management software. This research examines how to write specifications for these systems so that they are protected from rapid obsolescence, highlighting five important considerations for AMI deployment.
