Project Summary:

Genesis Power Ltd, which trades as Genesis Energy, (Genesis) is a state owned generator and New Zealand’s largest energy retailer with over 700,000 electricity and gas customers. It is aiming to rollout advanced metering services to 500,000 - 600,000 meters over the next 3-5 years. Communication technology will be GPRS.

The introduction of advanced meters has required the upgrade of Genesis’s customer information systems. Genesis is upgrading its billing and customer management system to provide a flexible back-office platform to enable Genesis to make use of AMI. Once economic scale of the rollout is achieved for the information systems upgrades (around 20,000 – 30,000 advanced meters in place), Genesis will look to offer customers a range of features, such as differentiated pricing.
