The Business Case for Next Generation AMI

In this session, attendees will discover some of the business cases being used to update AMI technology, along with how one cooperative is successfully leveraging its network for DA applications. First, Kyle Kopczyk of Power System Engineering will highlight three utilities who chose to add or upgrade AMI systems based on unique circumstances and business cases such as load management, DA, and prepay support. In part two, Josh Snoddy of Holy Cross Energy will discuss a project to add line sensors and other DA devices to the utility’s AMI network for the purpose of improving reliability, planning and daily operations. Both speakers will cover decision-making and integration processes that cooperatives will find helpful for implementing similar strategies going forward.
