For Benefits For Utilities •Reduced operating costs (less truck rolls) •Improved outage management –ability to quickly determine if power is off or on •Reduced number of delayed and estimated bills •Reduced energy theft •Lower procurement costs •Improves Load Profiler •Improves Distribution Load Management and Planning •Greater Historical Load and Usage Data •Better Asset Management and Maintenance •Time-Of-Use Pricing, pre-paid, and flat bill programs •Reduces need for additional generation and transmission capacity •Supports any P Cs U ’price-responsive tariff requirements © 2003 - 2008 Austin Energy 15 All Rights Reserved
  16. 16. Summary: Building The Smart Grid 1. Lead transformation with Enterprise Architecture 2. Follow with AMI program to reach every meter and key assets while deploying service area network 3. Feed CIS to enable new DSM/DR programs and billing rates (TOU, Net, Prepay, etc) 4. Feed OMS, GIS, and AMS/MMS. 5. Feed SCADA/EMS and Planning Tools as needed and/or feed new Distribution Management System. © 2003 - 2008 Austin Energy 16 All Rights Reserved
  17. 17. Many Challenges to Solve •Lots of culture / adversity to change challenges •Accelerate Open Standards Availability from Engineering Apps (CIM, OpenAMI, others) •Better SOA integration needed with GIS, OMS, SCADA/EMS, MDMS, IED (sensors). •Better BI from Relational and Real-Time Databases to help Self-Healing functions •IP-based Field RTUs •Open SCADA and IP integration •Missing standards for smart home controls •Distributed Generation to Grid Controls –Vehicle to Grid Controls © 2003 - 2008 Austin Energy 17 All Rights Reserved
