Enbridge is a leader in energy transportation and distribution in North America and around the world. The core of Enbridge’s Gas Distribution & Services segment, Enbridge Gas Distribution, has over 2 million meters serving residential, commercial and industrial (C&I) customers. The company manages the lifecycle of meters and instruments, including meeting the Measurement Canada requirements. It also processes interval data (15-minute interval) for approximately 3,000 of its commercial and industrial customers, in order to generate billing determinants to an interfacing legacy billing system.
LODESTAR is now offering an even more robust solution for meter data management. The revised LODESTAR Meter Data Management (MDM) solution offers energy providers improved functionality for handling large volumes of meter data to enable increased accuracy, flexibility and scalability. LODESTAR's MDM solution is designed for the highest levels of automation to improve current operations and to be flexible and scalable to meet your current and future needs.

Abstract: This presentation describes a number of industry working groups in Ontario that are working closely together to ensure the successful implementation of smart meters and related technologies.In broad terms, these various groups share a consensus view that a standardized approach to managing smart meter data, based on open standards developed by the market for the market, is needed to efficiently and cost-effectively roll out smart meters.
The Foundation for Research, Science and Technology has invested NZ$1.64 million (US$1.16 million) in energy technology company Energy Intellect Ltd., to continue developing a meter data management system called Interactive Energy Enterprise, or iE2.
iE2 is designed to connect, collect, manage and deliver hundreds of thousands of data sets associated with advanced interval electricity meters. The platform operates independently of geographical boundaries in global markets with differing regulations and time zones.
LODESTAR Corporation, provider of software solutions for the energy industry, announced the availability of an even more robust solution for meter data management. The revised LODESTAR Meter Data Management (MDM) solution offers energy providers improved functionality for handling large volumes of meter data to enable increased accuracy, flexibility and scalability.
Itron Inc. has launched its Enterprise Edition meter data management software. It enables utilities to deploy a single meter data management tool to support all types of metering based data – interval, register and event data – from residential and C&I customer segments.
Enterprise Edition's multi-vendor, multi-technology architecture means that utilities can consolidate meter data management on a single platform. The innovative use of application programming interfaces (APIs) allow utilities to provide easy access to metering-based data throughout the enterprise and beyond, which support a range of value-added applications beyond monthly customer billing.
