Increase Revenue with New Commercial Metering Technology

Revenue for water utilities is circling the drain. Most commercial water meters can stand up to the high water flow of commercial water customers, but these same meters often have a hard time measuring low water flows and retaining accurate meter reads over time and continuous flow conditions. Grocery stores, for example, do not pay for the scant amount of water used for produce misters because it passes through many commercial water meters without detection. These low flows add up to big dollars and are forcing water utilities to take a hard look at the accuracy of their meter fleet.This

Security and Resilience for Utility Network Communications

Utilities are rapidly implementing advanced communication networks, a component of the smart grid. The openness and ubiquity of these networks enable many of the benefits of Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) systems, but this same openness can create a vulnerability to the same risks faced by enterprise networks and the internet. This paper reviews the range […]
