This webinar was co-hosted by GTM Research and Northeast Energy Efficiency Partnerships on Tuesday 6, June.
Seamless digital communication between customers and utilities is becoming important as the electric system becomes more customer centric. The ability of AMI communication networks and data to support a wide array of customer and network applications are prompting states and utilities to evaluate AMI as a grid edge tool to achieve broad objectives, from energy efficiency to grid management.
GTM Research and Northeast Energy Efficiency Partnerships co-presented on the state of AMI in the U.S., discussing specifically how AMI has been justified and deployed in the U.S. and how the Northeast is examining costs and benefits of expanding AMI penetration in the region.
Trends and drivers of AMI deployment were discussed alongside case studies to provide insight into the drivers and justifications that have made AMI ubiquitous in certain regions but not others, and how utilities can overcome barriers to deployment.
