Advanced Metering Infrastructure
Ongoing projects representing nearly 50 million meters worldwide.
Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) is a system that allows customers’ electricity consumption to be managed remotely. AMI systems use smart meters and communication networks to collect and transmit real-time consumption data. Smart meters provide more accurate and frequent consumption data than traditional mechanical meters.
In France, the AMI deployment started in 2015 with the launch of Linky, the French smart meter. DSO Enedis has installed over 35 million smart meters on budget and on schedule, at no cost to customers and with a rigorous policy for recycling old equipment.
