Opportunities in the Australian Smart Water Systems Market : Mass Adoption by Utilities Nearing the Tipping Point, But Significant Challenges Ahead

This study looks at the current state of play in the Australian Smart Water Systems market It looks at the overall size and growth rates of the market and discusses key drivers and restraints impacting the development of the market Additionally, it analyses the competitive structure of the market and discusses the overall trends that are shaping the market It aims to highlight the key technology questions that are facing utilities in terms of their smart water strategy, and it also provides context for the Australian Smart Water System market through case studies of existing rollouts The study also provides an overview of the status and trends in smart water systems in key markets around the globe

Key Findings

The question regarding the adoption of Smart Water Systems (SWS) in Australia, has moved from “will” to “when” Many market participants believe that the tipping point for mass adoption is already at hand, and this will be led by a major utility taking the first step towards a mass rollout

-The primary driver to SWS adoption among utilities is the potential of the system to help make capital expenditure more efficient on asset upgrades and rollouts more efficient

-At present, the need for sophisticated two–way communication–enabled advance metering infrastructure (AMI) is limited, and thus automated meter reading (AMR) systems have dominated trial rollouts in Australia However, it is expected that large utilities looking to future–proof their
systems may adopt more advanced AMI systems

-The inflection point for SWSs will be determined by the decision of a state government to mandate a state–wide rollout Current indications suggest this is most likely to come from the state of Victoria by 2017

-One of the big challenges for larger utilities, which typically have the budget to explore new technologies, is in that their jurisdiction covers a large area This large area includes a massive asset base that presents competing investment priorities to smart water system rollouts As such, when conducting a cost benefit analysis, utilities have to consider the budget from a multidimensional front Real progress in SWS rollouts is at present being made in the mid– to small–sized utilities

-Impact on battery life will play a major roll in the selection of communication networks in SWS rollouts, as water meters in Australia are typically located away from power grids
