Utility AMI Analytics at the Grid Edge: Strategies, Markets and Forecasts

by Aakriti Gupta, Ben Kellison

Utilities around the globe are projected to spend $10.1 billion USD on analytics solutions and integrations services through 2021, to enhance the value of new and existing automated metering infrastructure (AMI) investments. These investments enable utilities to improve customer service and engagement, upgrade distribution grid management and increase overall energy efficiency.

Utilities continue to develop new applications beyond AMI's traditional meter-to-cash use cases. AMI-based grid edge analytics use cases have come to occupy two major categories: network and customer. On the network side, decentralized and centralized architectures are deployed to serve off-line and near real-time applications such as distribution O&M, predictive outage and reliability, and volt/VAR control. On the customer side, AMI data increases the accuracy of iterative and self- learning algorithms to enhance load forecasting, customer segmentation and load disaggregation.
