The Next Step for Smarter Cities: Analysing the New Demands for a Sustainable Future

  • How the Smart Cities Council is working with cities around the world to create a roadmap for innovation
  • How to break down the silos and share information for a holistic approach to energy and water management
  • How technology can be applied to reduce energy and water waste

Panel Discussion: Reducing Water Waste with Advanced Low Power Ultrasonic Static Metering

  • Up to 30% of fresh water supplies are lost due to leakage in developed countries, and in some major cities, losses can run as high as 40% to 70%
  • Mechanical meters have limited initial accuracy which degrades over time due to moving parts which wear from friction and contaminants
  • Ultrasonic static meters can measure as little as 0.5 liters of water per minute with better than 1% accuracy, 10x more accurate that mechanical meters
