The water and energy industry has advanced exponentially in the last five years in terms of the technology available to utilities – new types of meters, new ways of communication, and new sensors and technology that continually monitor the health and quality of our systems. Yet for all the advancement in technology, advanced metering projects remain inherently risky for many reasons; siloed decision-making within the city, multiple projects wrapped into one large deployment, and turnover in the department that leaves many operators and managers with inadequate tools to effectively run their new, advanced system to name a few.
Moreover, many systems work incredibly well on day one, but after four or five years of stagnation are not performing at their most optimal. This presentation will hit on how Metering-as-a-Service can help mitigate risk and improve outcomes in projects by approaching the deployment through the lens of comprehensive services and ongoing maintenance implementation. Delve into the vital importance of a robust maintenance program that ensures your upgraded metering system consistently performs at optimal levels, safeguarding your assets and maximizing efficiency – while learning how utilities can unlock the full value of their investments and attain unparalleled customer service benefits by adopting a holistic approach to modernizing their metering infrastructure.
This presentation will also touch on how utilities can procure this type of end-to-end approach in their own cities, making it accessible to everyone.
I. Reducing project, performance, and capital risk associated with system-wide metering upgrades.
II. Challenges around upgrading the entire metering system to obtain all returns on investment and obtain the customer services benefits that are attainable through an Advanced Metering upgrade.
III. Communicate the importance of having a robust maintenance program to ensure your metering upgrade is always performing at optimal levels.
