Wabash Valley Power picks Siemens, eMeter for smart grid

Orlando, Fla., June 2, 2010 – Siemens Energy and eMeter have been selected by Wabash Valley Power Association to implement eMeter’s EnergyIP software platform and meter data management application to enable a single system capable of providing meter-to-cash and demand response across multiple customer information and advanced metering systems.

“Wabash Valley works with multiple distribution cooperatives located in Indiana, Illinois, Michigan and Missouri, each with different meter types and customer information systems. For this reason, we needed a flexible software platform with proven smart grid deployments. Siemens and eMeter have the right product and experience to make our smart grid rollout successful,” said Andrew Horstman, manager of demand response, Wabash Valley Power Association.

Siemens and eMeter will be licensing re-usable, standards-based adapters to each of the member CIS and AMI systems, eliminating the need for expensive point-to-point, one-off integrations.

“Siemens is helping cooperatives, like Wabash Valley and its Member Systems, realize the benefits of the smart grid,” said Kevin O’Hara, vice president and general manager of Siemens T&D Service Solutions. “We’re pleased to assist in their transition to the smart grid, ultimately providing more effective and efficient service for their end customers.”

“We are excited to add Wabash Valley to our list of multi-organizational customers that have deployed eMeter’s EnergyIP platform. Wabash Valley and its distribution cooperatives are following a proven model for smart grid success,” said Bobby Napiltonia, SVP sales and alliances at eMeter.

As a generation and transmission cooperative, Wabash Valley Power meets the wholesale power supply needs of electric distribution cooperatives in Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Missouri and Ohio.
