Fabrizio-KFabrizio Carboni, SEE Energy Practice Leader SAS Inc., will brief you on the solutions at hand for modernization and for increased performance in the power sector, with an accent on the newest solutions for data monitoring, transmission and management in the power distribution sector. Here there are some questions that will receive proper answers: Is a SMART GRID / METERING project a scarecrow? What is it I need to be prepared to manage the project effectively? What is relevant to have defined before the project and roll-out will happen? Do we have a general and correct overview of the implications, needs, components and advantages offered by an investment like that? Did we analyze similar projects? Why some countries are rolling out to the second generation of smart meters? Which is the correct and efficient architecture to capture data? What can we say about the ROI using the newly collected information?



Around 80 professionals in the energy sector will participate the event, among them representatives of the largest distribution companies, as well as representatives from major communication and data management companies in Romania. There will be also be present representatives from profesional associations in the field, as well as high profile officials from the relevant regulatory agencies (NAMR, ANRE, Minister for Environment).

Smart metering for power distribution in Romania is still a promise. There are clear targets for 2020 and significant amounts of money already  engaged as scheduled investments. The actual implementation remains a topic of discussion between companies and regulators. Few information came out on the financial sustainability of smart metering, while experiences from other countries are not entirely conclusive.
