eMeter’s Real-Time Meter Data Management Software Puts Smart Grid Within Reach

eMeter Corporation, the global leader in Smart Grid data management, today announced the incorporation of real-time validation, editing, and estimation (VEE) for its EnergyIP™ software. The functionality is an important example of EnergyIP’s management solution that eliminates batch processing to handle meter interval and network device data in real-time. eMeter’s patent-pending real-time message bus coordinates on demand processes across applications, platforms and even organizations, resulting in improved billing, cash flow, logistics and delivery of customer information to utilities.

With the ability to instantaneously verify the accuracy of interval data and make corrections, real-time VEE intelligently fills in data gaps to provide utilities with a complete set of information across their entire business system. Access to clean and complete real-time data helps utilities to ensure accurate customer billing, enhance customer service and operate more efficiently. Real-time VEE is one of a number of EnergyIP’s services that go beyond standard MDM meter-to-bill capabilities for Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI).

Currently, eMeter is contracted with more than a dozen major utility billing systems on three continents, delivering bill-ready data for nearly five million meters, with 20 million additional smart meters under contract to utilize the EnergyIP management platform. With advanced functionalities, EnergyIP has passed the rigorous testing standards imposed by all customers prior to the start of billing, including synchronizing the meter data repository with the utility customer information system (CIS).

“Without real-time VEE, Meter Data Management (MDM) services cannot truly deliver in real time. eMeter is the only provider delivering an accurate real-time view to utilities’ back office applications,” said Cree Edwards, CEO and Chairman of eMeter. “We designed this functionality to ensure that utilities have immediate access to accurate data, and are on the path to Smart Grid compliance. Without the capability to correct data anomalies immediately, utilities risk stranding the functionality of their AMI investment and ultimately hamper their ability to deliver on the DOE’s Smart Grid requirements.”
