Call-for-proposal to develop and test-bed narrowband internet-of-things advanced electricity meters
Deadline for application:
Wed, 30 Sep. 2020
To develop, test-bed and commission advanced electricity meters capable of providing remote meter reading that is secure, reliable, and cost-efficient.
The advanced meter should be able to connect to a telecommunications company’s (“Telco”) Narrowband Internet-of-Things (“NB-IoT”) network, and GovTech’s Device Control and Data Acquisition (“DECADA”) platform as the Network Management System (“NMS”).
Currently, electricity meters are procured, installed and maintained by SP PowerGrid Ltd (“SPPG”) for and on behalf of SPPA. SP Services Ltd (“SPS”) reads electricity meters and bills consumers buying electricity from SPS and provides the consumption data to electricity retailers and the market operator.
There are two types of electricity meters. Cumulative meters, which are manually read by SPS’ meter readers on a bi-monthly basis, and Advanced Metering Infrastructure (“AMI”) meters, which are remotely read using SPPA’s AMI system based on Wireless Smart Utility Network (“Wi-SUN”) technology.
To support the Government’s push for a singular network standard in Singapore for IoT sensors, EMA is working with other agencies to explore the feasibility of using NB-IoT network as the communication network for electricity AMI meters.
This CFP is for the successful Proposer(s) (“Collaborator(s)”) to develop, test-bed and commission advanced electricity meters that can provide remote meter reading that is secure, reliable and cost-efficient, by leveraging on NB-IoT and GovTech’s DECADA platform as the NMS.
General Instructions to Participate
Local or foreign companies which (a) manufacture electricity meters, (b) possess proven track record in supplying utilities in Singapore or other overseas jurisdictions, and (c) secured partnerships with at least 2 Singapore Telcos to leverage on their existing NB-IoT network to implement the CFP, can participate in this CFP. Currently, there are 3 Telcos with NB-IoT networks in Singapore (viz. Singtel, M1 and Starhub).
As this will be a collaboration between a meter manufacturer and at least 2 Singapore Telcos with NB-IoT networks, the meter manufacturer shall act as the lead company for the purpose of submitting their joint proposal. For the avoidance of doubt, there shall only be one proposal submission for each meter manufacturer.
To facilitate companies to link-up with local Telcos on the proposed partnership, the organisers have indicated the points of contact for each Telco in the CFP document on the page linked here and on the button at the bottom of this page.
All proposals must be submitted via the Gov-PACT website at https://gov-pact.ipi-singapore.org by 29 Sep 2020, 2359hrs. Please submit using the Submission Template in Annex A on the page linked here and on the button at the bottom of this page.
Proposals shall be evaluated by a joint panel comprising EMA, SNDGO, GovTech and SPPA (the “Project Evaluation Panel”). The evaluation criteria are set out on the page linked here and on the button at the bottom of this page.
