Conference Documentation: Meter Asset Management

SMi is delighted to announce the return of the 3rd Annual Meter Asset Management Conference, which will be held in London on the 20-21 June 2016. In order to achieve the very ambitious 20-20-20 target, Member States need to consolidate efforts to drive transformation of Europe’s utility networks to become ‘smarter’. Utility companies across Europe face the prospect of meeting the EU’s goal of installing smart meters for a minimum of 80% of consumers by 2020. While utility companies and their customers have already seen significant benefits from smart meters, evolution and roll out programmes need to accelerate and challenges have to be overcome.

The 3rd annual Meter Asset Management conference will offer a comprehensive analysis of the advantages of smart meters, including first-hand successful stories from the utility companies themselves. The conference will dissect the obstacles involved in installing and managing smart meters. It will provide the perfect platform to engage with peers and industry leaders to discuss the best strategies to meet the 202020 target.

Transforming big data into structured information is paramount to the success of smart meters and therefore data, analytics and emerging solutions will remain a top priorities for discussion.
