Fluentgrid, along with other key partners led by Bosch, received the mandate to implement an advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) solution from Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL) with 500,000 smart meters. These smart meters would be deployed across Rajasthan, Andamans and other states. Fluentgrid is deploying its proven products for Meter Data Management System (MDMS), Analytics, Consumer Portal and Mobile App. This mandate is part of the 5 million meters being procured under EESL Wave-2 for rolling our smart meters across India.
Fluentgrid was also part of the first 5 million scale smart meter procurement under EESL Wave-1, in which we deployed our complete AMI stack of products including Unified Head End System (UHES), Meter Data Management System (MDMS), Analytics, Consumer Portal and Mobile App for NDMC and KESCO so far and awaiting more wins under the same wave. Incidentally, NDMC became the first Indian utility to have achieved 100% smart metering for its power consumers.
Fluentgrid is proud to be facilitating the universal smart metering objectives of Ministry of Power and EESL, with our robust and cutting-edge COTS products that support the latest technologies like IPv6 and are meter, communication and protocol agnostic.
