The SORIA programme – key challenges and successes

The Norwegian Water Resources and Energy Directorate decided in 2011 to make changes to the regulation on metering, settlement and coordinated action in sales and invoicing of power grid services to introduce advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) with a final deadline of 1 January 2019. Following this, a number of DSO decided to meet the challenge together to ensure a successful implementation of AMI and cost effective operations of same. By 2014, 29 DSO formed the SORIA programme and the fully owned service provider Validér had been established.

From Smart Metering to LV Fully Digital Networks

The end of the roll-out process is the beginning of the great challenge: how to get the best value from all the investment done and how to plan the following steps in the grid digitalization. Once the Smart Meter Roll-Out has been mostly completed, and the CORE of the Smart Grid has been built-up, we keep on digitalizing the LV network. Through this digitalization we can provide better grid knowledge and management, optimize the use of the assets (phase balance, feeder mapping..), improve grid reliability (integrating information into the ADMS) and give better service and information to our customers

Providing an Open, Standardized, Interoperable and Royalty-Free Smart Metering/Grid Foundation

Many DSO have executed Smart Metering and Smart Grid Pilot Projects as part of their digital grid transformation vision. But to take a step forward into the roll-out implies critical choices. The Choice of the Smart Meters being interoperable, open and royalty free technology has an important influence in the scope, schedule and cost/benefit of the project. PRIME is the supporting technology in Smart Metering & Smart Grid Roll-Out which is currently reaching the 15 Million Smart Meters Mark.

New Digital Utility Business Models by Combining SAP for Utilities Solutions with Siemens’ Meter Data management Solutions

Emerging business models focus on delivering reliable and efficient power, while transitioning to an increasingly distributed energy landscape. SAP and Siemens plan to help utility customers integrate real-time processing of Big Data generated by millions of connected meters and sensors to provide better insight and control for all energy producers and consumers – from the large-scale power plant to small micro grids. Real-time access to device and meter data combined with customer and commercial data will help provide utilities with a comprehensive view of their customers and technical devices. This will change the landscape in which utilities will operate in the future.

On the Verge of a New Era: Why the Energy Market is Ready for Digital Change

In this fast-paced world, consumers want to connect anytime, anywhere and on any device. With deregulation accelerating in many parts of the world and customer expectations, once-complacent incumbents and vendors are being forced to face the new reality – their world is changing. So if they want to stay relevant, attract new customers, or even maintain their current customer base, their back office systems must change as well.

Empowering the Customer Through Information

The focus of the presentation, in line with the session's topic is that in fact, behind the meter there is a customer who is demanding information, services, efficiency…Previously, the meter was simply a metering device that served the utility for billing purposes. Nowadays, the smart meters have changed this two-sides relation utility-meter, to introduce a third element, utility-meter-customer, that must be the center of the new conception of smart metering

How DSO can Support Demand Response as part of the Flexible Energy Markets

Energy production has shifted heavily from centralised to decentralised. As part of the energy transition, most of the disruption will happen in distribution network and DSOs has to change the way they manage the distribution network. In the traditional world the electricity was delivered through a passive network but when the electricity is generated more locally, it challenges DSOs and other market participants to develop dynamic network management tools including both market products and technical solutions. The key is to collaborate and find the ways to activate customers to balance the weather-related production when required. This challenges the energy sector to put customers in focus and solve the challenge without affecting too much for daily living. One solution is to utilise smart meters as part of the demand response, which could be used to open the demand response market and attract customers be active players also in the energy market.
