Vattenfall’s Deployment of the NES System is an Industry Benchmark
Although business case results are often inflated to get projects approved, sometimes the actual results are better than expected. That was the case with Vattenfall’s deployment of the Networked Energy Services (NES) System - Phase 3 of a multi-year, multi-vendor AMR project.
Vattenfall - Europe’s fifth largest generator of electricity - began deploying AMR to its 860,000 customers in Sweden. This was done to comply with a law that required electric utilities to provide customers with monthly meter readings, and provide meter data to all retailers and customers. Physical deployment began in 2003 and, as of June 2008, all meters had been installed with the exception of those in the clean-up phase (less than 1 percent of the total project).
