Ecologic Analytics, a provider of meter data management systems for power and natural gas utilities, has announced that it has been chosen to provide the meter data management systems for Oncor’s advanced metering system project. The meter data management systems (MDMS) will manage advanced metering system (AMS) meter read data for more than three million electric meters in Oncor’s service territory, claims the company.
According to Ecologic Analytics, initially, the Ecologic MDMS will load 15-minute interval data and daily meter reads from Landis+Gyr’s Gridstream advanced energy management service, then validate, estimate, edit (VEE) the data, post billing determinants and deliver the information to the respective Oncor systems ready for billing and presentment to the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT), the state’s settlement authority.
Mark Carpenter, chief information officer of Oncor, a regulated electric distribution and transmission business that uses asset management skills to provide reliable electricity delivery to consumers, said: “We look forward to working with Ecologic Analytics in the deployment of our AMS. The Ecologic MDMS provides a service with capabilities that are suited to our AMS architecture.”
