An overview will be presented of recent Smart Meter developments ranging from the headlines to how smart metering in large facilities can enable smart decisions for efficiency and reliability improvements.? Most discussions related to Smart Metering have focused on the problems, perceived or real, that residential customers have surfaced, as well as how the utilities and utility commissions are dealing with those problems.? What appears less popular are discussions of the tools now available to help customers manage and monitor their energy consumption.? In addition to a review of smart metering concepts and issues, a brief demonstration of the PG&Eâ??s residential smart metering interface and tools will be given.
The discussion will then turn to large energy users.? There is a large installed base of intelligent meters at many large organizations.? However, the actual IQ of these meters and systems varies dramatically.? Can you say that your system has a high IQ?? Does it tell you when you are successful or when you are not?? Can it provide accurate utility cost data or even predict your costs?? Does it help you identify weaknesses in your process?? Does it provide the answers your boss needs, when she asks the question?? Does the boss think that you already have this capability, but you know better?
This presentation will help anyone struggling with these questions with practical guidance and real life examples.
