London (PRWEB UK) 26 February 2013
Maintaining supply and tighter asset management is now essential for water companies. Population growth and environmental pressures are squeezing supply and driving change towards a more sustainable model. Currently, homes utilising smart water meters use 10% less water and enable their suppliers to reduce leakage levels by a fifth. The future will see this capability developed further, ensuring greater water availability, reduced environmental impact and lower energy bills.
Against this backdrop, SMi’s Smart Water Systems conference features a wide range of water utility case studies related to policies and regulations, planning, efficient technologies, best management practices, alternative water resources, the water and energy nexus, climate change and drought adaptation, water loss and network management, and public involvement.
Key speakers include:
- Anne McIntosh, Chairman, Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Select Committee
- Nick Kamen, Head of Energy and Utilities, Vodafone
- Andy Slater, Director Marketing EMEA/AP, Sensus
- Kim Bybjerg, Head of M2M Northern Europe, Vodafone
