Smart Metering in the Water Sector Phase 1: Implications of Energy Smart Metering and Future Research Priorities
Smart water meters could fundamentally change the relationship the water industry has with its domestic and business customers. They facilitate improved engagement with customers, deliver efficiencies within the water businesses, support wider social and environmental objectives, and collect revenue.
A revolution in Energy Smart Metering (ESM) is underway and this could act as a catalyst for smart water metering. This UKWIR project has taken a wide water industry view of the opportunities arising from the ESM programme and smart water metering. As a result priorities have been identified in the areas of customer research, network operations, costs and benefits, technology and the supply chain.
