Smart Water Metering: Unlocking The Benefits

This event launches new research and features industry insights into unlocking the benefits of smart water metering.

New research from Frontier Economics and Artesia, commissioned by Arqiva, provides a cost-benefit analysis and sets out the case for rolling out Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) compared to other forms of metering. This includes consideration of the benefits of each technology if climate change and demand growth are more severe than expected in the future. Further, this research explores the wider benefits water companies can gain from AMI smart metering, including alignment with adaptive planning, meeting existing commitments to reduce consumption and leakage, developing a richer understanding and engagement with customers, and supporting change in customers’ behaviours, and more.

The report provides recommendations for water companies and Ofwat as we enter the next price review (PR24) and Asset Management Plan period (AMP 8).

Featured speakers include representatives from a number of water companies, Waterwise, MOSL, and Arqiva. They will provide insight into the experience of rolling out smart water metering networks and the value gained from smart water metering.

This event comes at an important time, as the water regulator Ofwat progresses with PR24 and as deadlines for net zero and water demand reductions move ever closer. The event provides insights relevant to water companies, including individuals responsible for business and regulatory planning, water use and leakage reduction, customer engagement, and delivering net zero. The findings and real-life case studies presented will also be valuable to people interested in, and working towards, improved water resiliency and environmental goals across government, regulatory bodies, suppliers, and academia.
