AMI, Demand Response, & Smart Grid Learning Session Now at MEA's Electric Operations Conference
Midwest ENERGY Association announces an AMI, demand response, and smart grid learning session to be held on May 6, 2009 before MEA's 10th Annual Electric Operations Conference at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Springfield, IL.
One of the many benefits of modern two-way advanced metering systems, energy demand management systems, and automation technologies lies in the realm of distribution system optimization, system control and operation management decision support, outage notification and outage management. The integration of AMI data, system automation, and demand management applications into distribution and outage management systems (DMS/OMS) and business processes offers utilities benefits from increased reliability and customer service to greater energy efficiencies. The course will focus on these specific benefits and leveraging the power of the AMI, Meter Data Management, modern DMS/OMS systems, DR and Smart Grid applications to take the performance of both utility operations and T&D system assets to the next plateau of excellence.
President-elect Obama selected Steven Chu, the current director of the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, as his new administration's secretary of energy.
