Conference Documentation: Smart Water Systems

SMi is delighted to announce its 4th Annual Smart Water Systems Conference on the 29th and 30th April 2015 at the Marriott Hotel, Regents Park in London. Smart Water systems involves the use of Smart Water meters together with the latest technologies and real time data to better monitor water usage and detect any problems such as leakage.

The conference will strengthen knowledge of smart water meter data handling issues as well as looking at the practicalities of interactive billing. Understanding the customers’ behaviour, viewpoint and experience will be a major focus as will hearing from a selection of international water utility companies currently implementing smart meters.

Through interactive presentations this event will bring together key opinion leaders, utility companies, regulatory representatives, consultants, investors, engineers and vendors. It will give direct access to utilities and decision-makers involved in the smart water sector. This ground breaking event will also highlight new opportunities water utilities should be aware of and look at industry issues such as the fragmented market.

Key Topics:

Technological solutions for data handling
Understanding the customers’ behaviour, experience and viewpoint
Case studies from a range of international water utility companies in different stages of smart water metering implementation
