The necessity for water utilities to adopt smart metering is as pertinent as ever. Smart meters can cut leakage levels by 20% and reduce energy consumption by a third through associated software and infrastructure. European utilities alone will invest at least $7.8bn in smart water metering by 2020 and the market opportunities for meter manufacturers, installers, data & management organisations is clear.
SMi's Smart Water Systems conference provides distilled international perspectives on this exciting field and our line-up of international experts features a hands-on, case study-driven approach from those responsible for supporting their customers’ needs. From rethinking water provision, to harnessing M2M networks and directing consumer behaviour, gain the insights you need to remain competitive. SMi’s Smart Water Systems conference provides a focused, international perspective on these issues and much more from companies including Thames Water, m2ocity, Southern Water, Severn Trent Water, Vitens, Toronto Water, OFWAT, PricewaterhouseCoopers and Eureau.
