The Energy Market Authority (EMA) has appointed Accenture Pte Ltd (Accenture) to design and implement an Intelligent Energy System (IES) pilot project. The IES pilot will involve around 4,500 customers in various residential, commercial and industrial locations, including the Nanyang Technological University (NTU) campus, the CleanTech Park at Jalan Bahar and the Punggol Eco-Precinct. This is an important step towards a smarter power grid, which will provide consumers with more information, choice and control over their electricity usage, thereby improving energy efficiency for Singapore as a whole.
2. The IES pilot will be conducted in two phases. Phase 1 (2010-2012) will focus on the implementation of the enabling infrastructure for the IES. The key infrastructure components are the advanced metering infrastructure (commonly referred to as “smart meters”) and the communication system. Smart meters are equipped with communications capabilities, and provide both energy providers and consumers with detailed information on how much electricity is being used and fed into the grid. A good communications network is crucial for such information flows to be handled seamlessly. Hence a key emphasis in this first phase of the pilot will be to establish the smart metering communication protocols and standards. This will be done by leveraging on the Next Generation National Broadband Network and other communication platforms. Read more
