Ensuring your Utility’s Smart Utility Network Can Weather Any Storm

Thu, Oct 21, 2021 2:00 PM EDT

Demands on utility infrastructure are constant. Population growth, security, aging infrastructure, and even the pandemic, are some of the challenges that are frequently faced. However, climate change may be the biggest threat yet with more frequent and intense storms, flooding, and even drought. But this challenge can be addressed just by asking the right questions when investing in technology.

In this webinar you will learn about available technology to help provide continued operation even in the most severe weather conditions. We will share the questions to ask when investing in technology to ensure you have multiple levels of redundancy and can mitigate loss of data allowing complete and constant visibility into your water system ensuring the safety of your community.

Evaluating the Total Cost of Ownership of a True Smart Utility Network

Without a smart utility network, building a water distribution system that can adapt to ever-changing demands, such as climate shifts, population growth, regulatory changes and unforeseen situations like pandemics can seem overwhelming and expensive.

Utilities can start with advanced metering infrastructure (AMI), but a scalable adaptable system should go beyond just metering. Connection to edge devices, sensors, meters and more can offer additional data, giving you visibility and control across the entire water network, while also improving revenue capture and reducing water loss.

This session will share insights on how to look at the total cost of ownership of a smart water distribution system, showing short-term versus long-term operational and financial impacts to help make the right decisions for your utility.

Top utility challenges that can be addressed with your AMI data

Many water utilities are failing to make the most of their smart meters. If you’re only using your meter data to measure water consumption, you’re missing out on countless opportunities to use the information to build a smart utility network.

By gathering advanced meter data and taking a deeper look at the information, key improvements can be revealed to optimize your entire water system. This presentation will take a look at some of the top challenges utilities face and show how utilizing a smart utility network can leverage the insights for a more proactive approach to utility management and better customer service.
