AMI

The Directive 2009/72/WE of the European Parliament and of the Council of 13th July 2009 concerning common rules for the internal market in electricity:
 

  • mentions the development of smart grids as one of the factors contributing to the improvement of energy efficiency,
  • requires the Member States to implement metering systems assisting the active participation of consumers in the electricity supply market,
  • considers smart grids and intelligent metering systems one of the ways to optimise the use of energy by undertakings,
  • obliges the Member States to encourage the modernisation of distribution networks through the introduction of smart grids,
  • assumes that those grids should be built in a way that encourages decentralised electricity generation and energy efficiency,
  • stipulates that the development of smart grids in the particular European Union countries should depend on their profitability assessment in a given country, and obliges the Member States, in which that profitability is assessed positively, to equip at least 80% of consumers with intelligent metering systems by 2020.
       
    “Energy Policy of Poland until 2030”, in turn, is the most important document on the directions of energy development in Poland.

    In connection with the above, Polenergia Dystrybucja Sp. z o.o. plans to implement a pilot project of the Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) in one of the existing locations in the capital city of Warsaw.
    The project concerns the installation and commissioning of an intelligent metering system for remote two-way communication with electronic meters.

    The implementation of this system represents a significant financial and technological challenge, however it is exceeded by the benefits from the application of such a modern measuring equipment, i.e.:
  • reduction of energy consumption:
    - adjustment of energy use to the needs and budget of a household,
    - raising the end user’s awareness of energy efficiency,
  • development of new competition mechanisms in the electricity market, in particular the disclosure of the price elasticity of demand,
  • enhancement of energy security, including improvement of the energy supply and parameter quality,
  • simplification of the procedure of changing the energy supplier,
  • increase of the sense of energy security,
  • elimination of the manual meter reading and bill data entry process,
  • implementation of the AMI system as a stimulator of further development of Smart Grid.
