  • You may decide to swap out either the Siemens or IBM logo for the utility’s logo -- or another SI that they currently work with.Purpose: Highlight the applications that are build on top of the platform. There are the applications that exist today. The applications we have planned in our roadmap for the next 2 releases. And, finally applications that perhaps we don’t know about yet, or custom apps that the utilities can build on their own (or with a partner).Key Message (pick the applications that make the most sense and talk to those):In addition to the robust functionality that we have in the platform, we have several applications that are pre-built and ready for you to implement. Additionally, because our platform is open, we welcome others to develop applications on top of our platform using our API’s. So, whether your own IT department wants to tackle a project, or you want to have a System Integrator or eMeter partner build the custom app, you will be able to leverage the eMeter platform to support it.This means that no matter what the future brings, we’ll be able to continue to build new applications and so will you. Our MDM (Meter Data Management) solution is addressed with our Interval Billing application. In fact, the combination of Interval Billing & EnergyIP will give you more functionality than is in a standard MDM. Our belief is that MDM is just the first step to Smart Grid success, and there are many other applications that will be tremendous value to you.Energy Engage is our consumer engagement portal that allows utilities to provide customers access to up-to-date information about usage and costs. Some other solutions rely on batch data for their consumer portals – which means that the information that the customer and customer support reps each see will be out of synch.Remote Connect/Disconnect – The Remote connect/disconnect application supports complete business process automation around utility service connect and disconnect operations.Deployment Planning and Management (DPM) – The DPM application leverages EnergyIP’s AMI Management database (synchronized daily with CIS) to generate detailed plans of meter installations, network surveys, and network equipment installations, supporting project personnel as they generate a rolling schedule for the AMI installation Management System (IMS). Outage Event Management – The Outage Event Management application processes and delivers outage event and other outage related information to the utilities Outage Management System (OMS).  The application supports event filtering through configurable business rules including, Bellwether, De-bouncing, and Open Field Order filtering to eliminate spurious events and avoid overwhelming the OMS during a large scale outage.  In addition, the Outage Event Management supports real-time power status verification to confirm restoration activity before crews leave the scene.

    9. 9. German Pilot Phase- Typically driven by metering department- Initial focus of pilot was meter to cash Retail- Creates more questions than answers on business, processes, architecture and best practices: - Where do I want to go from here - How do I enable value add services to be competitive - How do I differentiate myself in the changing market - Can I serve my customers better - How can I reach maximum flexibility - Has this be done somewhere - What will the market look like in 5 years - Can the Pilot Scale? - How much can/should I invest in growing the pilot - Is my IT landscape ready for the future - How to support various metering data - What kind of data I need - End2End Architecture AMI Infrastructure

    11. 11. Smart Meter Data Challenges• Managing the business processes and the data: – Meter Provisioning and Activation – Data Collection – Problem Detection and Resolution – Data Synchronization – Data Processing and Distribution• By the numbers: Every day the AMI operations team must support – per million meters – >2,000 meter exchanges per day during deployment – >1,000 customer moves per day (25% yearly turnover) – 10,000 missing reads per day (99% daily read success) – 20 meter failures per day (0.5% annual failure rate) – 10,000 data changes per day – >97,000,000 meter reads per day (15-minute interval data) – Nearly 4,000,000 missing data intervals per day• Not to mention HANs, grid sensors, EVs, etc.
