  7. 7. 3.Structure of DSM AMI assumes communications among Smart Meter, Service Providersincluding utility companies and Energy Management System placed in thedemand side. Between service providers and consumers AMI provides information tovarious systems through Meter Data Management System (MDMS). Forexample, billing automation system, distribution automation system are donethrough AMI. The introduction of AMI makes it possible to measure power consumption real time. 7 ⓒ 2011 insprout Corporation. All rights reserved
  8. 8. 4.Big News! California PUC adopted the world’s first comprehensive set of rulesto ensure that consumers can access the detailed energy usage datagathered by their smart meter. This decision calls for:1. Web Presentment -Utilities must provide via their websites such information as detailed energy usage.2. Tier Alerts -When customers move from one price tier to the next, the utilities are to provide notification.3. Rate Option Calculator -Help consumers understand whether they would save money by switching to a time-of-use rate.4. Real-time Data -Decision requires them to file plans that “include an initial phase with a rollout that enables a minimum of 5,000 HAN-enabled devices to be directly connected with smart meters.5. Third-Party Data Service - Consumers can authorize third parties to receive their backhauled smart meter data directly from the utility to support services such as energy efficiency. Will use OpenADE as standard. 8 ⓒ 2011 insprout Corporation. All rights reserved
