Accenture helps Endesa with smart meter rollout in Spain

Accenture and Endesa are working together under a multi-year business process outsourcing agreement to facilitate the utility’s ongoing smart meter rollout in Spain. Endesa is to install more than 13 million smart meters.

Accenture is providing back-office support to Endesa’s distribution unit as it expands its smart metering operations and is helping the utility integrate its smart meter infrastructure, which provides metering, billing and contract management information, with its existing billing systems and business processes.

 

In addition, Accenture is collaborating with Meters and More, an international non-profit association created by Endesa and its parent company, Italian utility Enel, and supported by a consortia of companies, to promote the deployment of smart meters and develop standards for pan-European and worldwide smart metering solutions.

Smarts meters are gradually replacing traditional meters to provide remote management capabilities for utilities. Smart meters can record consumption of electric energy and deliver that information to the utility for monitoring and billing purposes and opens the door to the deployment of smart grids. Smart meters enable two-way communication between the meter and a utility’s central system.
