Information

A report from the Association of Nigeria Electricity Distributors (ANED) at the end of 2018 revealed that the Discos collected N422.5bn in 2018, up from N344.7bn in 2017, with the collection efficiency rising to 65% from 60% while the aggregate technical, commercial and collection losses dropped to 49% from 54%.

More recently, ANED reported that “The aggregate ATC&C loss KPI (moving average) keeps consistently improving and it is now at 43.3%, although, and again IE has achieved a new record of 20.6% and, in a commendable way, Kano has reduced almost 20 points of ATC&C losses in just two years.”

If revenue collection from electricity sales start to fall in light of the ongoing pandemic and proposed tariff increases, the impact will be devastating, and any ground gained will be lost.

During this session we will showcase Conlog’s experience assisting utilities in their pivot to digital in a time of huge uncertainty and financial pressure. In addition, we will consider the importance of process management at the time of installation and how technology can facilitate seamless integration of meters into your network.

The sessions will highlight the importance of remote insight into power usage, customer purchase patterns and detecting potential fraud.  In addition, we will examine how easily, seamlessly and cost effectively utilities can deliver superior customer service through remote vending, managed metering services and Conlog’s cloud platform – saving utilities money and improving on their customer engagement.
