AMI Working Group (disestablished)
The Authority supports the provision of standardised information exchange formats to enable the low cost, standardised and reliable information exchange between participants. In some cases, the use of those formats is mandatory, e.g. where there are interfaces with the registry and reconciliation manager, and in others, it is voluntary, e.g. interfaces between participants.
The Authority considers that standardisation of interface and common methodology for information exchange is necessary to ensure the inter-operability of different AMI systems with any user of AMI information. Situations could occur where multiple AMI system providers operate within the one distribution network, or where installation control points are switched between retailers.
The purpose of the AMI working Group (AMIWG) was to consider the requirements for interfaces and communication media as a result of new technology and make recommendations to:
- the Authority for the implementation of new interfaces and communication media; and
- the Standing Data Formats Group (SDFG) for the implementation for amendments to existing interfaces.
The members of the AMIWG were:
- Nick Bennetts (Independent Chair)
- Paul Atkins (Advanced Metering Services)
- Michael Peterson (Arc Innovations)
- Phil Hawkey (Contact Energy)
- John Van Brink (WEL Networks)
- Quintin Tahau (Energy Market Services)
- Erick Coenen (Genesis Energy)
- Gerry Pallo (GreyPower)
- Corrie Stobie (Mighty River Power)
- Andrew Collier (Northpower)
- Jim Barrett (Powershop New Zealand Limited)
- Robert Copeland (Pulse Utilities)
- Duncan Head (Vector)
Prior to 31 October 2010, the AMIWG was administered by the Electricity Commission.
The AMIWG is administered by the retail team within the Authority. Correspondence concerning the AMIWG should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
