Delivering on the Promise of AMI
 ComEd is focusing on an initiative, framed around the concepts described in the AMI
Plan Chapter 3 – Customer Applications, to emphasize the benefits and value
customers receive from the AMI deployment
 ComEd believes its position is to establish itself as a leader in setting the vision of an
AMI-enabled customer and clearly articulate these messages to its customers
 ComEd believes its role will vary by each product or service and aligned to one of
these five strategies:
1. Enable – third parties develop new applications (products/services) that run on ComEd platform. Enable
in a variety of ways – e.g. providing data, or technology (test bed)
2. Partner – with developers to demonstrate their applications
3. Facilitate – introduce products and services to our customers. Example: provide an online marketplace
on our web page for customer devices, services and web apps
4. Promote – get the message out about the kinds of things customers are doing (BOMA, Nest)
5. Deliver – ComEd designs and delivers projects (i.e. PTS, demand response, energy efficiency)
 Establish “Co-Creation” process leveraging “Enablement” workshops with stakeholders, key
industry participants, and customers to accelerate the advancement of value creation
• Example: Sponsored Innovation Competitions
Delivering on the Promise of AMI
 ComEd is delivering approximately 15 products and services in 2013 – 2014 that
directly deliver value to customers derived from the AMI Implementation. Example
products and services include:
Peak Time Savings

offered through partnership, promoted or delivered.
• Of this list, ComEd has defined an initial set of approximately 20 products and
services that ComEd can help bring to the market either through partnerships,

establishing a 2014 release schedule for these products / services

 An innovative concept for program design
Modeled after programs launched in 2013 by the California IOUs

encouraged to market directly to customers
