The UK government will allow the public to track Whitehall employees’ energy use after installing real time energy meters across 18 Whitehall headquarters.
Electronic Water Meter For Leakage Repair - Case Study
Every year, EMS (Energy Management System) produces and markets smart electronic water meters (domestic/ bulk), wireless transmission data logger (GSM/ GPRS), and advanced AMR (Automatic Metering Reading) systems. Unlike traditional mechanical water meter, the magnet-free electronic smart water meter with class C (CNS 14866) metrological performance can maintain 12 years battery lifespan. With a tamper-proof design, it also has leakage detection function, flow directions, monthly water consumption log, and MNF...
Why we need to get enthusiastic about smart energy meters
The national rollout of smart energy meter systems will give power back to consumers while helping to create a sustainable energy future - but only if the technology is adopted enthusiastically. Paul Rafis explains why we need to promote a culture of proactivity to make the smart meter project successful. The fight for energy sustainability is being fought along various national and international fronts, but the dusty cupboard underneath your stairs has not featured in this energy debate, until now. The...
A Cleaner Energy Future
As renewable energy plays an increasingly important role in the world’s energy portfolio, the standards of ASTM International Committee E44 are helping to pave the way for innovation in clean energy sources. A growing population and improving living standards around the world are causing significant increases in energy demand and competition for fossil fuels. These escalating energy requirements are converging with diminishing fuel resources, resulting in a ripple effect throughout our global economy and...
Smart metering use cases to increase water and energy efficiency in water supply systems
Efficient water and energy use in water distribution systems is being limited by the lack of sufficient data about water and related energy consumption. Therefore, it is crucial to provide updated and continuous feedback information to water users. This paper describes relevant use cases to improve efficient water use and related energy consumption by water utilities and consumers through the use of smart metering technologies. A systematic approach was established to obtain a comprehensive list of possible...
