National AMI Deployment Plan

Turning to the issue of a low-carbon economy, the construction of a Smart Grid plays a vital role in our energy conservation and carbon reduction strategy.“Taiwan national AMI deployment plan” has been approved by June 2010, the AMI deployment driven. “The Smart Grid Master plan” has been approved by September 2012.


1. AMI in HV systems

(1) In Taiwan, the high voltage is from 11.4kV to 69kV, and the super high voltage is over 69kV. The total users are 24 thousands, which engage 60% of total energy consumption in Taiwan, for time of use (TOU) policy.

(2) The high voltage smart meters were installed totally 24 thousands users in 2013. The communication is telecommunications network(e.g. GPRS/3G/4G).


2. AMI in LV systems

(1) In general, 13 million resident users engage 40% of all energy consumption. Most of the meters are mechanical meters, for progressive tariffs.

(2) Bureau of Energy (BOE, MOEA) kicked off the low-voltage AMI pilot project in 2010, located both in Taipei, Hsinchu and Tainan. This AMI system includes not only 1,000 smart meter, data concentrator, communication head-end and MDMS, but also the last-mile application, 20 home energy management systems (HEMS). This pilot project could be the platform for local industry to demonstrate technologies, exhibit products, and possible oversea market exploration.

(3) Taipower company have completed a smart meter demonstration on four sites, including Taipei, Hsinchu, Taichung, and Penghu, totally 10,392 low voltage users in 2014.

(4) To evaluate the cost benefit analysis for building AMI system, there have completed two phases of Time-of-Use (TOU) stratagem during 2013 to 2014. There are 800 participants to join this TOU programs, that the average energy saving is 3~5%. Next phase of AMI for low-voltage users is under discussion.
