The TMG AMI Strategy

Empowering the Next Generation of AMI

As Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) extends its reach worldwide, utilities are faced with a myriad of questions and challenges as they navigate their smart metering journey. Despite the nearly one billion
smart meters deployed within utilities globally, the utility industry as a whole is still very early in the race to future-proof its metering infrastructure. For the many utilities who have yet to embark on their AMI journey, their age-old questions persist about how get started. Is my system ready for this kind of investment? Will the benefits of deploying this “smarter” infrastructure outweigh the cost of even a modest deployment? What is the best way to stage and structure deployments so that they effectively capture and monetize benefits? Even “early adopters”, with relatively mature infrastructures in place, face these same questions as they look to augment or replace their systems with the next generation of smart metering technology.
