Smart water meter market poised for growth
"The smart water meter market is poised for steady growth in the coming 5 years, driven by increasing demand for water itself, aging system infrastructure, and a need among utilities to operate their systems much more efficiently."*
Maintaining supply and tighter asset management is now essential for water companies. Population growth and environmental pressures are squeezing supply and driving change towards a more sustainable model. Like the energy sector, water technologists today are directing consumer behaviour through complex tariffing. Currently, homes utilising smart water meters use 10% less water and are helping their suppliers to reduce leakage levels by 20%. The future will see this capability developed further, ensuring greater water availability, lower energy bills, and the environmental impact reduced.
SMi Group's Smart Water Systems conference provides a focused international perspective on these developments.
Why attend the Smart Water Systems conference?
• Appraise regulatory implications of the Water White Paper for UK utility companies
• Implement lessons for real-time data integration across the entire supply-demand water chain
