All 250,000 analogue electricity meters on the Island of Malta will be replaced by new smart electronic devices as part of a €70mn smart grid programme to eventually establish a ‘smart utility’ system. The Maltese national electricity and water utilities - Enemalta Coporation (EMC) and Water Services Corporation (WSC) - have selected IBM to implement the five-year project. The solution is designed to improve operational efficiency and customer service levels by introducing smart meters that allow clients to better manage consumption. The system will also enable restructuring of the billing process, improved customer relationship management and the introduction of e-services.
