SMi is pleased to announce the return of its Meter Asset Management conference taking place on the 22nd – 23rd June 2015 in London, UK. This conference will cover issues relating to new smart meters as well as focus on looking at the retention of traditional metering and the many processes involved in switching them over.
Currently, utilities across Europe face the prospect of meeting the EU’s goal of installing smart meters for 80% of consumers by 2020 (European Commission, 2015). Whilst each country is meeting these goals within different time frames, many are in the same position as the UK and are in a crucial stage in the road towards full roll outs. Additionally, gas, electricity and some water suppliers face similar challenges in managing existing meter assets and planning for the roll out and maintenance of smart meters.
