Smart Water Metering in the Victorian Urban
"Major smart electricity metering programs are underway in Europe, North America and Australia that are designed to support the efficient use of resources and investment. The state of Victoria has mandated the deployment of Smart Electricity Metering (SEM) to all residential and small businesses by the end of 2013. In Victoria, the issues of climate change, population growth, security of water supply and empowering customers have encouraged consideration of extending the use of Automated Meter Reading (AMR) or Smart Water Metering (SWM) to the Victorian Urban Water Sector. It is expected that leveraging the SEM network would lower the costs for a SWM implementation. To facilitate the Victorian urban water sector’s analysis of smart metering, the Department of Sustainability and Environment (DSE) commissioned Marchment Hill Consulting (MHC) to investigate, with industry collaboration, whether smart water metering could benefit the water industry and community. The study demonstrated, via a cost benefit analysis, that AMR and SWM capability could provide quantitative benefits. This paper describes the collaborative approach adopted in the study, the key findings, and the study recommendations. "
