Multi-applications networks which include AMI capabilities have been heavily pursued by utilities over the past decade because of the ascendant power of data. As a result, utilities now have the chance to unlock opportunities with low voltage applications like never before.
AMI tools are foundational to supporting smart utilities by maintaining grid efficiency and distribution energy resource management, supporting billing processes, and enabling member service engagement programs. Utilities now have more insight into their customers’ behavior and how the grid is utilized by accessing more granular data points collected with low voltage applications. Yet challenges still exist that can prevent utilities from maximizing ROI on grid modernization efforts. This will be even more critical as low voltage applications continue to be adopted across the grid. In this white paper, explore ways that utilities are prioritizing grid management use cases and challenges that utilities face in capturing the full value of AMI data.
