10th Annual Smart Water Systems Conference
VIRTUAL CONFERENCE: ONLINE ACCESS ONLY
SMi are proud to announce the 10th annual Smart Water Systems virtual conference taking place on 19th and 20th April 2021.
Now that the water companies’ business plans have been submitted and OFWAT have entered the next critical phase of their price review process - scrutinising each and every plan in detail to ensure they are robust enough to deliver a high quality, affordable and resilient service to customers in the years 2020-2025 and beyond.
SMi’s Virtual conference will highlight the methods the water companies are using to ensure the goals and targets that have been set are reached and exceeded. Focussing on how new technologies, IOT and Artificial Intelligence can help to produce and analyse real-time data to ensure more efficient leakage detection and management; leading to better customer engagement and subsequently decreased customers water usage.
Case Studies from Water Companies in England, Portugal, Belgium, The Netherlands, Sweden and Ireland - that are already advancing with smart network technologies and strategies - will discuss the critical need for accurate, clear and manageable forecasting for consumption of water. Looking at new technologies and innovations that show best solutions for monitoring and metering, leakage detection, understanding of customer expectations, data-collection tools and handling of 'big' data.
An update on the smart water meter roll outs that have been happening across the UK and parts of Europe will be a special focus exploring in detail the challenges and new developments of this implementation - such as increasing water demand, meter reading challenges and customer focused approaches.
