Get Smart Grid News Updates


A smart water network – or smart grid for water – may be the Next Big Thing as communities around the world come to terms with water scarcity and the need for water conservation. As a key component of a smart water network, smart water meters integrated with sensing technologies give water utilities advanced tools for more efficiently measuring water consumption and providing water customers with data to help them monitor their water usage and reduce costs. Leak detection and identifying non-water revenue are also key benefits of smart water meters and a smart water network, as you'll learn by scrolling through this section.
