In today’s technologically driven environment, energy is a valuable resource that needs to be controlled with increased efficiency in order to ensure a reduction in losses, a conservation of energy, and a lowering in peak demand.  Sharp increases in the cost of electricity will ultimately have a direct impact on the end-consumer… (more)

This paper describes the benefits of adding remote access terminals to split STS prepayment metering installations. Characteristics of two pilot sites are given to demonstrate the versatility of such systems to utilities and consumers. Interoperability and co-existence issues are noted and the end use capabilities of this form of “smart” prepayment system are compared with those of emerging “smart” AMI meters… (more)

This is viewed holistically for a utility and what efforts management should make to improve the business economics of the electricity utility… (more)
