CESI has also been selected by Uzbekenergo as a technical advisor for the development of a smart metering installation project in Uzbekistan. The metering infrastructure forecasts one million smart meters as a first step of installation at households and industrial clients in three local regions, and it will be followed by similar projects for a total investment of one billion USD and four million meters.
The complete smart metering installation project, expected to be finalized by 2015, will allow for significant reductions to the current level of losses on the grid while reducing operating costs.
Floris Schulze, Managing Director CESI Middle East, comments: "With the Middle East electricity market forecasted to grow at an accelerated rate over the next few years due to higher consumption rates, an implementation strategy is required in order to bridge the gap between supply and demand. A smart grid network makes for the ideal bridge where the goals of modernization can meet those of reliable public infrastructure. Moreover, actions towards bridging the gaps are vital steps for the GCC region as it moves towards the development and implementation of newer, more advanced technologies and innovations that will deliver sustainable solutions and cost-savings through energy conservation. Smart metering and smart grids are a growing trend across the region and deserve serious consideration and the formulation of a strategic plan for their deployment." Read more here
