IBM and Oncor Team on Large Scale Advanced Metering Deployment

Oncor reaches milestone in IT integration

Submitted by: IBM

Categories: Clean Technology, Corporate Social Responsibility

Posted: Jul 15, 2009 – 09:14 AM EST

 

ARMONK, N.Y., July 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- IBM (NYSE: IBM) today announced that it is the lead systems integrator for Oncor's advanced metering systems deployment. The company contributed to Oncor's significant milestone this month -- the reporting of 15-minute interval, billable quality data to the Texas market. Oncor, the largest regulated transmission and distribution system in Texas, is leading one of the most comprehensive and largest deployments of smart grid technologies in the nation and is scheduled to replace 3.4 million standard meters with advanced meter systems by 2012.

IBM is assisting Oncor by providing expertise in smart metering and systems integration along with its understanding of large meter data management, business analytics, and security solutions.

"As smart grid rapidly gains momentum around the world, we are pleased to be selected as the systems integrator for another full scale deployment with regulatory approval," said Guido Bartels, General Manager of IBM's Global Energy & Utilities industry. "IBM is working with clients like Oncor to deliver on the promise of a smarter grid by transforming a network into something more robust, secure and intelligent -- enabling customers to manage electricity usage in a more informed manner."

IBM's Solution Architecture for Energy and Utilities (SAFE) is a software framework and products such as Data Power, Maximo, Tivoli Identity Manager, Tivoli Compliance Manager, etc. will enhance the security and reliability of the information technology solution

"Oncor's Smart Texas(SM) initiative is one of the most advanced smart grid efforts underway today. IBM is responsible for integrating the complex systems supporting Oncor's advanced meter system deployment," Mark Carpenter, vice president and chief information officer, said. "Achieving the important step of reporting 15-minute interval, billable-quality data to the Texas market wouldn't have been possible without IBM's participation."

About Oncor
Oncor Electric Delivery Company LLC "Oncor" is a regulated electric transmission and distribution business that uses superior asset management skills to provide reliable electricity delivery to consumers. Oncor operates the largest distribution and transmission system in Texas, delivering power to approximately 3 million homes and businesses and operating approximately 117,000 miles of transmission and distribution lines in Texas. While Oncor is owned by a limited number of investors (including majority owner, Energy Future Holdings Corp.), Oncor is managed by its Board of Directors, which is comprised of a majority of independent directors.

IBM and Smart Grid
Infrastructure investments are at the forefront of stimulus packages around the world to spur economic growth. Smart systems are transforming energy grids, supply chains, water management and the healthcare industry to name a few. Modernizing the power grid provides consumers with the information to understand their energy usage and take actions to reduce wasteful use and integrate renewable (intermittent) energy sources like solar and wind.

IBM is working with clients in nearly 50 smart grid engagements across emerging and mature markets.
