Intelligent Metering for Water Potential Alignment with Energy Smart Metering (2008)

  back to resources page

This report examines the potential for aligning intelligent water metering systems with energy smart metering. With large-scale rollout of energy smart metering anticipated by the Government and the energy industry, this report describes the smart metering developments in energy and explores the political environment. Opportunities were investigated for a jointly developed, universal, coordinated installation and rollout of energy and water smart metering solutions. The report concludes that while a joint rollout may not occur in the near future, it is important to avoid creating any barriers to do so long-term.
