Since 2010, Uruguay's government and private sector have closely collaborated on making a major investment in the energy sector.
The government of the South American country is enforcing the guidelines established by a policy that is firmly committed to renewable energies, with significant short-term goals and attractive tax privileges that contribute to the development of the sector.
All of this is related to a technological transition in which it is necessary to implement new mechanisms for the control, process and better manage the information generated by these new energy sources.
UTE (Administración de Usinas y Transmisiones Eléctricas) the State company in Uruguay tasked with generating, transmitting, distributing and marketing electricity throughout Uruguay, is to undertake a series of projects as part of the Smart Grids Master Plan.
In this, the implementation of MDM (Meter Data Management) is the cornerstone for all other activities focused on energy efficiency, distributed generation and progressive elimination of power generation from polluting sources. This task was awarded to Indra and thereby set a close commitment between the two companies.
Indra is a leading consulting and technology company and a technology partner for the key operations of its customers' businesses worldwide. It offers proprietary solutions and high value-added services for electricity generation and to support the distribution and sales activities of utility companies.
Indra's energy and utility solutions have been implemented at more than 140 electricity, water, oil and gas companies in more than 45 countries.
