Jan. 19, 2012 - PRLog -- *Increased demand for water itself, the ageing system infrastructure, and a need among utilities to operate their systems much more efficiently, the smart water meter market looks set to expand. Existing infrastructure requires maintenance and utility operators will also want to evaluate the intrinsic worth of upgrading to the latest meter technology as well. Other factors that will propel smart water meter shipments include the need to conserve scarce water supplies and the need to reduce high levels of non-revenue water as well as the need to satisfy regulatory requirements.  Growth will also come from emerging markets in Asia Pacific and elsewhere as water metering rises along with rising standards of living and the need to manage this valuable resource efficiently.

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.

•    Case study: the Southern Water universal metering programme
Jon Crooke, Deputy Director - Universal Metering Programme, Southern Water

•    European utilities perspective on water savings
Dominique Gatel, Deputy Technical Director - Drinking Water, Veolia

•    Case study: installing smart networks and smart monitoring systems at Thames Water
