A North American Point of View on the Challenges and Key Benefits of AMI, Demand Response and Smart Grid
Until recently, utilities often undertook metering or demand response projects separately. Today most utilities embark on Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) projects which include both metering technology as well as Demand Response (DR) functionality and often advanced in home devices such as In Home Displays (IHD’s) and Programmable Communicating Thermostats(PCT’s).
These are often further integrated with other infrastructure improvements building toward the highly capable Smart Grid. Today’s more visionary companies will use smart metering as an opportunity to positively influence their destinies, and ultimately, the direction of the North American electrical system.
