Turkish utility Enerjisa Baskent EDAS has deployed a smart metering solution from Siemens, providing the company with flexible, efficient and customer-oriented grid control, while also enabling it to meet new regulatory requirements.

Enerjisa Baskent EDAS supplies electrical power to more than three million people in the region around the capital Ankara.

Smart metering provides energy suppliers with more accurate power consumption data than has been available until now, plus additional data over and above the actual power consumption measurement. In this solution, the data processing function is performed by the EnergyIP meter data management system.

An important aspect of the project was the integration of the existing metering infrastructure, with more than 20,000 meters from local manufacturers, in the smart metering system. To ensure standardized business processes, the smart metering system was also integrated in Enerjisa Baskent EDAS’s SAP accounting system via a standardized interface. The Siemens EnergyIP Analytics Foundation data analysis tool was also implemented. This tool converts AMI data into analyses and reports that can be used anywhere within the entire company.
