The Hon. Peter Batchelor, Victoria’s Minster of Energy and Resources, will give a ministerial keynote address at the 5th Metering, Billing/CRM Australia & New Zealand.

In 2005, an expert study was commissioned by the Victorian Government, in collaboration with distributors and retailers, to investigate the use of enhanced communication technology in electricity metering. The study demonstrated a positive societal case and, in 2006, the Victorian government determined that Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) would be deployed to all Victorian consumers by 2012. Since then, all other Australian jurisdictions have committed to a process to examine the case for AMI. The momentum for AMI is clearly building.

The 5th Metering, Billing/CRM Australia & New Zealand will take place in Melbourne, Australia from October 23-25, 2007. Attend to hear more about the developments in the region.
The full conference program will be available on the website from August 17.
