The key ingredient for a truly smart water metering system
MetadataShow full item record
A range of external factors have placed an increasing responsibility on water utilities to adopt more sustainable approaches to urban water management, as the era of readily accessible and inexpensive water fades. Covering costs, monitoring non-revenue water and meeting customer demands for equity in billing in the face of rising water prices are some of the core challenges. Recognising that smart metering systems have the potential to revolutionise current utility operations and customer engagement approaches, Rodney Stewart argues that information systems and associated informatics are the (currently missing) essential ingredients for the successful deployment of smart meters.
