Integrated network information systems (INIS)

The INIS project runs from 2014 to 2017 and is receiving funding totalling EUR 1.8 million from the Austrian Federal Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology (BMVIT). INIS develops methods and processes based on smart meters and sensor data for network analysis in order to achieve improvements in system efficiency and network operations. The implementation of an ICT infrastructure suitable for the network operator is being defined and implemented. The objective is to enable the interoperability of ICT architecture with existing systems and future smart grid requirements.
