Newsbyte: SAP And RheinEnergie Successfully Complete Pilot Project With 30,000 Smart Meters For Cologne

MADRID, April 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --  SAP AG (NYSE: SAP) and RheinEnergie, the energy provider for Cologne, Germany, have reached a major milestone right on schedule in helping Cologne become a "smart city." Through the installation of smart meters, around 30,000 households in Cologne now benefit from the most modern meter technology available. The announcement was made at the SAP Conference for Utilities 2012, being held April 17-19 in Madrid.

Advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) integration technology allows customers to keep an eye on their current and previous energy consumption at all times. The transparency helps them better control their consumption, use energy more efficiently, protect the environment and save money.

"This innovative flagship project for the German market impressively shows how intelligent meter technology can optimize business processes, and highlights the crucial role played by a 'smart' customer information system," said Thomas Breuer, executive board member, RheinEnergie.

RheinEnergie has installed around 30,000 smart meters in 350 larger apartment buildings in Cologne. The devices record electricity, gas and water data, and were specially designed to meet the requirements of RheinEnergie and its home city. They are an important building block for the future "SmartCity Cologne," and enable high data security. SAP® AMI Integration for Utilities software helps ensure a reliable networking of technical and commercial processes. As a result, RheinEnergie can now better react to the needs of its customers and offer special services and rates.
