The changing definition of smart metering


Conference: Smart Metering West Coast 2006
Location: San Fransisco
Presenter: Frits Bruggink
Abstract:Presented by Frits Bruggink at Smart Metering West Coast 2006. The resistance of AMR proponents to the metering industry’s switch from AMR to AMI has resulted in a muddying of the waters as to what AMI really delivers. This presentation will detail the differences between AMR and AMI from a benefits standpoint.  It will create a clear understanding of the near and short term benefits of true AMI solutions and the shortcomings of AMR solutions that seek to obscure the difference.
