When the pilot program, initiated last year, eMeter’s EnergyIP platform and customer web portal was chosen as its smart grid information management solution. As Taiwan’s smart grid implementation continues, eMeter will provide its partners with training and frontline support.
In addition to successfully integrating different meters with its platform in phase one, eMeter reports it also tested “different communication protocols including PLC, ZigBee and WiFi, and set up a Traditional Chinese interface for its customer web portal Energy Engage.” Furthermore, eMeter has effectively integrated different brand meters to its Meter Data Management System (MDMS), while integrating meter data from the head end to eMeter EnergyIP.
During phase two, eMeter will continue to work alongside its local partner in installing 400 additional meters, as well as providing Home Area Network (HAN) meter data support. eMeter will also enable its core reporting module, and provide consultation on training local personnel to create customized reports. Through this pilot program, eMeter not only demonstrates the company’s comprehensive technical resources and training capabilities for local partners, but also proves the reliability and scalability of its MDMS platform.
Bobby Napiltonia, Senior Vice President of Worldwide Sales and Alliances, notes, “eMeter understands our partner’s priority is to acquire the frontline support of local manufacturers in the region, and is well suited to help create a Smart Grid deployment that is cost effective, provides fast response and enables local language use. That is why eMeter is devoted to providing local partners technical support and training to reduce development time and the cost of professional assistance while maintaining the integrity of the project.”
The Advance Metering Infrastructure (AMI) project was officially initiated in 2010 by the Ministry of Economic Affairs.
eMeter provides essential software that enables electric, gas and water utilities to realize the full benefits of Smart Grid.
