Electricity meter reading
Collection and processing of electricity meter data in Smart Grids.
A system for the automatic collection of electricity meter data, prepared for the imminent transition to real-time data collection. Due to new legislation, Swedish utility companies are now having to invest heavily in Smart Grids and to be successful in this they will need considerable project know-how, advanced IT systems and telecommunications expertise. Tieto, with its substantial experience from several large-scale AMI projects in countries like Sweden, Finland, Norway and Italy, its wide-ranging knowledge of the energy sector and, last but not least, its in-depth and considerable know-how in both IT and telecommunications, has what it takes to support utility companies as they introduce Smart Grids.
Services and systems that enable the collection and processing of electricity meter data and measures based on supply and demand, prepared for the demands of the future, legislation and business opportunities in Smart Grids. We base our solutions on our substantial knowledge in the energy sector, our considerable IT skills and world-leading know-how in telecommunications.
Advanced Meter Infrastructure (AMI) is the first step towards Smart Grids. Smart Grid functionality is on a par with the Internet:
Decision-making is distributed
The flow of electricity is in both directions
Control and monitoring are distributed over the grid’s nodes and spread throughout the system
Self-repair and the option of independent cells in the grid is embedded
