Accenture and Siemens Providing Smart Metering Solutions for Utilities Globally

(Transmission & Distribution World Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Accenture and Siemens Infrastructure & Cities are working together to provide smart metering solutions to help utility companies improve the automation, planning, monitoring and diagnosis of their electric grid infrastructures.

Accenture and Siemens will specifically collaborate on Advanced Metering Infrastructure and Meter Data Management solutions, which are designed to provide a utility with more information on its grid’s activity and help increase operational efficiencies such as improving the response time to an outage.

Accenture Smart Grid Services (ASGS) will provide consulting, systems integration and managed services for smart meter and analytics solutions. Siemens will leverage its eMeter EnergyIP Meter Data Management Platform and Analytics Foundation and corresponding professional services.


Accenture and Siemens will help utilities manage the vast amounts of data gathered through smart meters which provide detailed information on the status of their distribution systems as well as customer consumption. The increased use of smart meters, which also provide visibility and control over the distribution grid, is critical as utilities seek ways to drive energy efficiency and integrate growing amounts of renewable power from sources such as solar and wind into the power supply network.

Siemens and Accenture are currently working with SaskPower, a leading Canadian utility, to help implement an advanced metering infrastructure that will help the company provide more reliable energy and better customer service.
