Webinar Overview:

Implementing AMI opens the door to new value opportunities for utilities and their customers. While the upfront cost is high and a significant resource commitment will be required, the long-term value can be substantial. It is up to each utility to understand AMI’s value potential and arrive at their own decision and path forward.

This is a four-part webinar series that can be taken as individual webinars or as a full series.

Overview of the AMI Journey, May 4, 2021

Why are utilities talking about AMI? While the answer is not the same for everyone, each utility has a goal to meet evolving customer needs and make future decisions with the customer in mind. Before implementing AMI, it is essential to understand the overall journey and high-level considerations through an organizational lens. 

AMI Readiness & Strategy, June 8, 2021

The more that organizations understand the AMI process from A to Z and align their thinking and goals, the more effectively they will be able to assess their AMI readiness and develop an actionable AMI strategy.

AMI Implementation Planning, July 13, 2021

This session will provide a clear understanding of how AMI will transform the organization and insights, as well as practical tools that will help prepare your organization to understand and limit the risk that could derail the implementation(s) over time. This session will help you understand how AMI will holistically impact the organization and change its business unit processes.

AMI Post Implementation and Looking Ahead, July 20, 2021

This session will offer practical insights and ideas to support a series of AMI programs and projects representing a continuation of the initial effort. You will become familiar with best practice techniques and tools to support future AMI implementation planning efforts based on each successive project effort’s outcomes. You will also hear insights into possible ways of structuring both premortem and post-mortems as part of the AMI roadmap.
