Intent and Objective of Smart Meter Summit

In the recent past, to improve the operational efficiency of the Distribution Companies and to provide better cost effective services to consumers, Power Distribution Sector worldwide is rapidly adopting the Smart Metering Technology. This technology is futuristic and helps Distribution Companies in effective distribution operations as well as help utilities in managing dynamic and disruptive changes happening in the grids due to solar energy infusion, Home Automation, Electric Vehicles, Storage, etc. In India, itself, there are around 360 million consumers and smart metering adoption is in initial stage. Similarly, for any Smart Cities, Smart Energy is a prerequisite for which Smart Metering is the core enabler.

The objective of SMS is to provide a platform for key stakeholders to discuss the metering requirements and opportunities in India. The conference will also highlight the key challenges faced and enable knowledge sharing on various aspects of smart metering including communication systems, emerging technologies, design and testing, and data acquisition and management. The conference will also showcase the best practices in the metering space.

Smart Metering Summit is virtual conference intends to invite experienced solution providers with proven technologies to participate at this exclusive forum and showcase their technology/services to collaborate with state or private energy distribution companies in implementing Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) at competitive prices and with proven technology.

Delivering a Smooth Roll-out Through Cross industry Collaboration

Deploying an Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) is a fundamental early step to grid modernization. AMI provides the framework for meeting one of the Modern Grid’s Principal Characteristics – Motivation and Inclusion of the Consumer.

AMI is not a single technology, but rather an integration of many technologies that provides an intelligent connection between consumers and system operators.AMI gives consumers the information they need to make intelligent decisions, the ability to execute those decisions and a variety of choices leading to substantial benefits they do not currently enjoy. In addition, system operators are able to greatly improve consumer service by refining utility operating and asset management processes based on AMI data.

Through the integration of multiple technologies (such as smart metering, home area networks, integrated communications, data management applications, and standardized software interfaces) with existing utility operations and asset management processes, AMI provides an essential link between the grid, consumers and their loads, and generation and storage resources. Such a link is a fundamental requirement of a Modern Grid.
