Landis+Gyr, a provider of integrated energy management solutions, and Acea Distribuzione, the largest municipal utility in Italy, have completed one of Europe’s largest smart metering rollouts in Rome. The implementation of the integrated AMM (Advanced Metering Management ) system began in 2004 with the objective of improving energy efficiency in Italy’s capital. The system includes high accuracy bi-directional meters and smart grid applications such as network operation control, and the ability to monitor low and medium voltage line status automatically. The system has been designed to be extended to gas and water meters. The same system is also being implemented in other utilities in Italy and abroad, including EPCG, the national electricity distribution company in Montenegro, as either full-scale or pilot applications .
Acea Distribuzione serves 1.5 million electricity customers in the area of Rome and about eight million water customers across Italy. It is one of the biggest municipal utility providers in Europe. Acea Distribuzione S.p.A selected Oracle® Utilities Meter Data Management to provide a centralized, robust meter data management system and support the company’s Automatic Meter Management (AMM) project .
