Bringing electricity meter reading into the digital age
Are Telefonica Brands
Spanish electricity company Endesa has been pioneering the use of intelligent networks to measure and control its utility tension meters.
The World Machine platform (developed by Telefónica) used by Endesa currently consists of 18,000 telemetry and remote control points, and is estimated to grow to 35,000 points. Endesa is planning to extend this system to all of the Spanish territories where it's operating: Andalusia, Catalonia, Canary Islands, Balearic Islands and Aragon, as well as the northwest of Spain.
In a relatively short time, Endesa has reaped the benefits of using World Machine in its advanced metering technology. These include:
Endesa's success with its cutting edge system has convinced other industry leaders that advanced metering technology is needed to improve efficiency. In fact, many European governments are now passing regulatory requirements to promote AMR and AMI. So the success of the project has proved far reaching and highly influential.
