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.
