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
