Table of Contents


- Help utilities save water and money

According to a report by Sensus, utilities could save up to $12.5 billion by implementing smart water systems, so there are huge opportunities for smart water companies who are offering the right solutions. Smart water networks will allow utilities to monitor and maximise existing water supplies, respond to regulatory pressure for improved customer services using cloud-based platforms, save expenditure on new infrastructure to secure water supplies and generally their network efficiency overall. There are also long-term benefits – saving water resources now will stand utilities in good stead for a future characterised by climate change, increasing water scarcity and population growth.

Designed to help you pitch the right solution in the right markets, this report is your guide to identifying the biggest opportunities for your solution now, planning your product development, or devising strategies to partner with businesses who complement your offering – so you can evaluate the potential of providing an integrated smart solutions to meet the changing needs of utilities.

Smart Water Networks takes a global approach to the market, but focuses on trends and opportunities in the areas with the most activity, including the USA, Israel, UK and Australia. So you can get find your foothold in the market, the report explores the following major opportunities:

Leakage reduction – non-revenue water through leakage is high globally, even in developed markets, and utilities are losing both revenue and water. We identify significant opportunities in the smart architecture, so you know exactly how and where to pitch your smart solution to utilities.
Smart Metering – conventional meters and low meter deployment are becoming the source of billing inaccuracies (often to the detriment of the utility) in a relatively short time span. We show you the markets driven by revenue losses or regulations that demand improved customer information and services – so you can identify the markets with the best opportunities for your solution.
Software and cloud-based services – adopting smart systems will result in highly granular data which utilities are not equipped to handle. We show you how this is creating opportunities for software companies to offer data processing services so that utilities can monitor water supply and spend more efficiently.
Outsourcing – this report demonstrates why emerging markets with big budgets offer exciting opportunities for smart water network businesses. We identify the regions with the potential to invest in smart solutions but without the local expertise to manage these systems, so you can identify the regions with the biggest demand for your expertise.
Integrated solutions and partnerships – we show you how partnering with key players in the smart networks architecture to offer an integrated solution will give you the key to success in getting by in from your target utilities.
