FAQ: SP AusNet – AMI Program Review

SPAusnet The State Government of Victoria has mandated the rollout of Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) – including remotely-read interval meters, communications infrastructure and data collection systems – to all premises in Victoria. SP AusNet, one of the three electricity distribution companies responsible for this rollout, engaged Market Reform to conduct a ‘health check’ of its AMI Program, to identify and examine key gaps and points of concern, make recommendations for remediation/mitigation, and form an assessment concerning the likelihood of the program meeting its delivery obligations. This review, reporting to the CEO, was conducted in an accelerated timeframe, utilising a senior team of experienced consultants, with international experience in advanced metering and market infrastructure establishment programs.
