New technologies for the treatment and distribution of water promise to create “smart water grids.” The market for smart water metering systems is poised for steady growth in the coming years. New technologies can also help improve customer satisfaction with remote-disconnect capabilities and alert systems that notify customers of potential problems ahead of high bills. But substantial deployment costs will force utilities to make tough choices. Most of the growth will occur in North America and Western Europe, two regions where aging infrastructure will spur investments in the newest metering technology.
Featuring senior research analyst Neil Strother, along with Hassan Ali, vice president and general manager at Mueller Systems, and Brian Fiut, product line manager at Itron, this webinar examines the market for smart water systems, focusing on key drivers including decaying infrastructure, rising demand for treated water, and the need for greater conservation. The webinar also explores the challenges facing water utilities as they plan to implement advanced technologies that require sophisticated data analytics capabilities.
