Event - Smart Water Systems

Smart Water Systems will take place on April 28-29, 2014 in London, UK. Hosted by the SMi Group Ltd, this event will be looking into this topic and how smart water is all about coming up with initiatives to manage water more effectively, monitor it all the way along throughout the cycle so that we can better manage and preserve this precious resource.

The demand for water is ever increasing due to growing population, climate change and cost of water. The ageing infrastructure of the water systems coupled with the increasing demand is adding pressure to the water networks. As the water infrastructure age, many problems crop in in terms of water leakage, water contamination, inability to detect water quality and so forth. One of the ways to address these problems is by creating a smart water system. Smart water systems involves the use of smart water meters together with the latest technologies and real time data to better monitor water usage, distribution and problems such as leakage. This also enables to tract the water network and pinpoint problem areas.

The SMi Group is proud to present its 3rd Annual Smart Water Systems Conference which will be looking into this topic and how smart water is all about coming up with initiatives to manage water more effectively, monitor it all the way along throughout the cycle so that we can better manage and preserve this precious resource.

Key areas to be discussed in the conference are:

• Smart water metering
• Smart water irrigation and the Weightless Protocol
• Addressing leakage and improving water supply systems
• Preserving our resources: Optimising water usage
• SmartWater4Europe
• The customer’s point of view and opinions on smart water networks
• Technology focus and looking ahead (future plans)
• Case studies from different water companies across England that are implementing smart meters and that are involved in optimizing water usage
• An insight into the latest technology behind smart water irrigation
• Understanding the importance of involving the customer in the supply chain
• Implementing wireless networks for water companies; thereby facilitating communication among companies
• Evaluating leakage as a major problem in the water systems
• Understanding how to overcome the challenges associated with reducing leakage
