Kansas City Power and Light using Siemens, eMeter for smart grid initiatives

Orlando, Fla., May 23, 2011 – Kansas City Power and Light has selected Siemens Energy, Inc. to implement eMeter EnergyIP, a meter data management system as part of its smart grid demonstration project funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

Using proven, solution-delivery capabilities, Siemens will provide configuration, testing and integration services into KCP&L’s information technology systems. The primary objective of this project is to demonstrate standards-based interoperability between the MDMS and other KCP&L smart grid systems.

This standards-based integration will complement the other innovative Siemens’ technologies already chosen by KCP&L – Smart-Substation and Spectrum Power distribution management system.

Siemens was selected to partner on this project because of its standards-based implementation processes and commitment to on-time delivery. eMeter was chosen based on its product strength and proven implementations already in the market.

In addition to the integration of eMeter EnergyIP, KCP&L’s smart grid project includes Siemens’ Smart-Substation controller and Spectrum Power DMS.

The Smart-Substation controller provides an intelligent substation information technology platform to enable real-time substation and feeder automation, Volt/VAr control and demand management, while Spectrum Power DMS facilitates operations information management and security.
