eMeter and EnergyICT partner to offer EnergyIP


Data Collection Redwood City, CA, U.S.A. — (METERING.COM) — October 19, 2006 – eMeter, a provider of software and services for utilities with fixed network AMR systems, and EnergyICT, a provider of large-scale interval meter data collection, processing and management solutions, have partnered to develop EnergyIP™ – a new product that offers meter data management, AMI business process management, and system integration capabilities.

EnergyIP combines the Power Information Platform™ by eMeter (PIPe), a mass market advanced metering information system, with EnergyICTs EIServer® and ComServerJ® – a C&I meter data collection and management solution.

eMeter is now marketing EnergyIP to electric and gas utilities throughout North America. “The PIPe is already used to manage data for millions of meters in the U.S., while EIServer and ComServerJ retrieve and manage interval data for most large C&I customers in Europe,” says Cree Edwards, the company’s Chairman and CEO. “Utilities implementing EnergyIP can meet their urgent, short-term need to upgrade C&I data collection while positioning themselves for the rapidly coming world of mass market AMI.”

EnergyIP is an enterprise-class application that supports and maintains advanced metering information with a sophisticated data model and automated support for advanced metering business processes. It includes a meter data repository and fully automated validation, editing and estimation capabilities, as well as interfaces to AMI data collection technologies and utility business systems.

Stefan Grosjean, Chairman and CEO of EnergyICT, says: “We look forward to continuing our track record of winning bids as energy companies replace their limited capability legacy C&I data collections systems with scalable and modern software, as demonstrated by the purchase and use of our system for daily data collection from over 55,000 C&I interval meters in the UK.”

EnergyIP interface adapters are available for over a dozen AMI systems, with multiple adapters already implemented for utility CIS, outage management, work management, GIS and other enterprise systems.
