At a Glance: How Utilities are Using AMI Beyond Meter Reading

March 2019
U.S. Department of Energy
AMI, utility data

AMI gives utilities specific, measured data about the state of the distribution grid out to the grid edge, allowing operators to find–and fix–issues faster. Mining and analyzing the meter events, alarms and logs, and pairing meter data with other system data–SCADA, GIS, OMS for example–provides operational benefits that go far beyond meter reading. This document provides a list of operational uses for AMI data.
