Tighter grip on the energy metering chain

Stedin is the grid operator in the majority of the Randstad region – a busy conurbation with complex infrastructure, where the heavy reliance on energy means that it must always be available to support working and living, today and tomorrow.
Now, in the midst of the energy transition, it is more essential than ever that Stedin can complete its projects on time and efficiently. This necessitates a tight grip on its production. Therefore, Stedin has asked Involvation for support in implementing S&OP in the energy metering chain based on the principles of DDSCM.

Grid operators review smart meter chain

The coming years smart meters will be rolled out in the Netherlands. Four grid operators have decided to jointly review the smart meter supply chain in an integral fashion. The expectations are that by cooperation between all chain partners including suppliers and contractors many benefits can be obtained for all parties involved. The cooperating grid operators have asked Involvation to support them during design and realization.
