Instrumented Interconnecteds Intelligent

As reported by Fortune.com, IBM is teaming with the Mediterranean island nation of Malta to build a smart utility system.

The plans include replacing:

“250,000 utility meters with interactive versions that will allow Malta’s electric utility, Enemalta, to monitor electricity use in real-time and set variable rates that reward customers that cut their power consumption. As part of the $91 million (€70 million) project, a sensor network will be deployed on the grid along transmission lines, substations and other infrastructure – to provide information that will let the utility more efficiently manage electricity distribution and detect potential problems.”

very interesting project, especially due to the fact that this particular ‘smart’ meter is very caricative in that it can register much lower consumption rates with the aid of a strong magnet. For anyone’s interest, this can be procured from magnet.co.uk for as cheap as 30 euro. Enjoy

I just found your post and how funny is that after 2 years there is still debate about electricity supply in Malta.
