London, United Kingdom, December 01, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- SMi is delighted to announce the return of the 7th Annual Smart Water Systems Conference, which will be held in London on the 25th and 26th April 2018.
As well as discussing market drivers responsible for rapid market growth, Smart Water Systems 2018 will address the increasingly large role that data and information plays in the water management industry and analyse various data strategies and the demand for operational implications for real-time information.
The roll-out of smart water meters across the UK and many parts of Europe have presented challenges such as an increase in water demand, meter reading issues and customer focused approaches. This conference will take a focused look into the evolving smart technology and digital developments in the water industry, from the views of regulators, utility companies and solution providers. Concerns about data management security and data protection will also be addressed, with discussions on how to manage "big" data and new advances in data-collection techniques.
“In recent years we have seen a rapid growth in interest in smart water systems. This has been fuelled by heightened consumer expectation: that we should understand our water networks and take proactive action, in addition to the emerging technological developments in Internet of Things (IoT) communications and data processing,” said Jeremy Heath, Innovation Manager from Sutton and East Surrey Water. “The conference will allow for informative presentations from subject matter experts in all areas related to smart water systems, and thereby provide a tremendous opportunity for meaningful discussion.”
Featured speakers will include:
Jeremy Heath, Innovation Manager, Sutton & East Surrey Water
David Black, Senior Director of Water 2020, Ofwat
Andrew Tucker, Water Efficiency & Affordability Manager, Thames Water
Ben Earl, Water Efficiency Manager, Southern Water
Peter Yolles, Founder, WaterSmart Software

Steve Kaye, Head of Innovation, Anglian Water
Kevin Murray, Metering Technology & Solutions Specialist, Irish Water
