Joel Westvold, AMI director with Portland General Electric (PGE), will present a paper reviewing the latest developments in the utility’s smart meter deployment. Apart from discussing certain aspects of the project, this session will illustrate the importance of building a sound strategy, and how this strategy will evolve through cooperation and learning from other projects.

PGE plans to deploy approximately 850,000 smart meters for residential and commercial customers between 2008 and 2010. The majority of the new meters are expected to be installed once initial system testing is completed in late 2008. AMI is also expected to support the future development of demand response and direct load control programs that will help improve energy efficiency and reduce the need for new power plants. Eventually, AMI will enable PGE to provide customers with access to their daily energy use information via the Internet and near real-time data available through a home area network link built into the meter. PGE believes demand response programs could help reduce peak demand and shift customer usage to off-peak periods of the day when power costs less.
