SMi is delighted to announce its 7th Annual Smart Water Systems Conference, which will be held in London on the 25th and 26th April 2018. The Smart Water Systems conference will not only discuss the market drivers responsible for this rapid growth, but address the increasingly large role that data and information plays in the water management industry.
A smart water system is designed to gather meaningful and actionable data about the flow, pressure and distribution of an area’s water supply and waste. Furthermore, it is critical that that the consumption and forecasting of water use is accurate, readable and manageable.
That is why Smart Water Systems 2018 will look at topic areas such as the best solutions for monitoring and metering; understandings of customer expectations using behavioral science and data-collection tools; handling of ‘big’ data; and the operational strategies of UK and international utility companies that are already advancing with smart network technologies and strategies.
Water systems are a critical component of our broader utility management system in our increasingly technologically advanced society. Once water facilities are optimized and designed to gather meaningful and actionable data, industry leaders can make better and faster decisions about their operations, which can result in up to 30 percent energy savings and up to 15 percent reduction of water losses. This conference will witness a vast-breadth of experience in the smart world from the advanced systems of Thames Water’s efficiency program though to Water-Link’s proactive flooding detection and many more examples from across Europe.
The 2018 Smart Water Systems conference will therefore allow for informative presentations from subject matter experts in all areas related to smart water systems, and thereby provide a tremendous opportunity for meaningful discussion. We look forward to you joining us at the event and we are excited to see you there!
