Transitioning to Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) is complex, time consuming, and expensive. Utility managers are challenged to integrate AMI with various other utility systems while also creating flexibility for future improvements. Also, utilities often fail to leverage the plethora of AMI data to improve operational efficiency.
This WaterSide Chat brings together two experts that will discuss how to overcome challenges associated with upgrading a metering system to AMI. Joe Ball is the Director of Solutions Marketing at Itron, Inc. Joe brings decades of experience helping utility managers optimize their existing metering systems. Spencer Cashwell is a Program Technician at the City of Bend, Oregon who brings 20 years of experience implementing, deploying, and managing water metering systems. He’s been instrumental to the City of Bend’s multi-year transition to AMI.
We hope you can join the conversation on Tuesday, February 28th.
