As both suppliers and consumers grapple with some of the toughest water challenges yet, heightened demands for better ways to monitor, manage and share data about distributed water will make smart water metering a solution of choice. Smart meters support water management efforts, serve increasingly sophisticated customer demands, and enable operational efficiencies that preserves affordable rates – all while helping to address the world’s water demand and scarcity issues.
Global market insights predict that the global smart water meters market will experience steady, extensive growth during the next five years. At Jacobs, we’re already proudly supporting our clients throughout their smart metering journey. We work with utilities of all sizes, from 5,000 customer regional-utilities to national providers with well over one million accounts.
