As per Bali, Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) is one of the top five smart grid technologies, and smart metering will be a key intervention for smart grids shortly.

He also said that in addition to revenue maximisation, smart metering will aid in improving reliability, lowering O&M costs, and integrating renewable energy.

The summit brought together experts from all corners of the smart metering industry.
