Part of the $750 million Smart Energy Program, Capgemini says its work will involve the implementation of smart metering technology and associated network and computing infrastructure, essential to the installation of approximately 1.8 million electric and 600,000 gas advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) endpoints throughout Consumer Energy’s service territory.

The program will be led by the systems integration team from Capgemini’s North America Application Services unit in collaboration with Itron and SAP. Itron will support the implementation with its cellular-based network communications solution equipped with data collection applications and Itron’s meter data management system. SAP will provide architectural development and quality assurance professional services for the program.
