Course Description

Introduction

This GLOMACS Revenue Protection training seminar has been developed as a comprehensive and interactive course on reducing non-technical losses in the electricity and water metering businesses. Exploring the benefits of having robust processes to identify and sustain the reduction of non-technical losses through analysing data, physically identifying and making the metering secure, and training people to recover the financial losses.

Course attendees will receive a thorough grounding of why revenue protection is a useful financial solution to revenue leakage. Looking at best practices in locating energy theft in traditional meters and the security issues of those meters, and also understanding the difference smart metering will add to revenue protection, by utilising data and analysing enhanced security measures within the meter to determine if electricity / water is being stolen. To understand how regulation, legislation and license conditions can be a contributing factor to how revenue leakage can be reduced.

Case studies will support the theories to make the learnings very practical for application to the attendees’ own businesses and organisations. Many of the principles that are established in the course will be applicable to stakeholder / consumer engagement at large, and not just in the context of smart metering, therefore delegates might consider attending even if they are not already directly involved in smart metering.
