eMeter, a Siemens business, has completed a 50 million meter benchmark test. According to the company, the test demonstrates that its EnergyIP Smart Grid Application Platform can provide utilities of any size with energy consumption analytics.

As part of the benchmarking process, eMeter achieved Oracle Exadata Optimized status through Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN). eMeter explains that the test of EnergyIP 7.6 with Oracle Exadata was based on multiple real-world scenarios requiring estimation of missing data, computing and delivering time-of-use billing values, and updating database records related to high-volume smart meter installations and normal daily customer changes.

"In our testing, we achieved a sustained meter read processing of over 400 million intervals per hour, completing processing in under six hours, exceeding the daily handling criteria to scale to 50 million meters while utilizing under 60 percent of Oracle Exadata resources," says Lisa Caswell, president of eMeter.

“Factors like mergers and the growth of shared services mean many utilities have to manage a rapidly growing amount of data,” Caswell adds. “The ability to scale to 50 million meters ensures our customers predictable and stable performance with a risk-free growth and scaling path."
