The National Electric Power Company (NEPCO) for the Kingdom of Jordan has chosen an enterprise energy management system from Power Measurement to monitor the region's newly restructured electricity transmission grid.
The Internet-based system will use a network of approximately 150 intelligent ION 7500(TM) energy meters to track and verify energy transactions between Jordan's generation and transmission companies.
The ION energy management system was selected to help facilitate the deregulation of Jordan's national electricity supply network.
The initiative dates back to 1999 when, as part of an ongoing commitment to provide its citizens with reliable power at a reasonable price, the government of Jordan chose to split the state-owned NEPCO into three legally and financially independent operating companies: the Central Electricity Generation Company (CEGCO), the National Electric Power Company (NEPCO), and the Electricity Distribution Company (EDCO). The restructured power sector is intended to create a competitive, financially viable environment for the production and sale of electricity.
Power Measurement is a provider of enterprise energy management systems for energy suppliers and consumers worldwide. The company's ION web-ready software and intelligent energy meters comprise a real-time information and control network that helps improve power quality, reduce energy costs and keep operations running enterprise-wide. — (menareport.com)
