AMI Home Area Network Update SAG Meeting March 18, 2014
Delivering on the Promise of AMI ComEd is focusing on an initiative, framed around the concepts described in the AMI Plan Chapter 3 – Customer Applications, to emphasize the benefits and value customers receive from the AMI deployment ComEd believes its position is to establish itself as a leader in setting the vision of an AMI-enabled customer and clearly articulate these messages to its customers ComEd believes its role will vary by each product or service and aligned to one of these five strategies: 1.Enable – third parties develop new applications (products/services) that run on ComEd platform. Enable in a variety of ways – e.g. providing data, or technology (test bed) 2.Partner – with developers to demonstrate their applications 3.Facilitate – introduce products and services to our customers. Example: provide an online marketplace on our web page for customer devices, services and web apps 4.Promote – get the message out about the kinds of things customers are doing (BOMA, Nest) 5.Deliver – ComEd designs and delivers projects (i.e. PTS, demand response, energy efficiency) Establish “Co-Creation” process leveraging “Enablement” workshops with stakeholders, key industry participants, and customers to accelerate the advancement of value creation Example: Sponsored Innovation Competitions 2
