The UK government will allow the public to track Whitehall employees’ energy use after installing real time energy meters across 18 Whitehall headquarters.
Smart Water Metering For Smart Cities
One of a city’s most important pieces of critical infrastructure is its water system. With populations in cities growing, it is inevitable that water consumption will grow as well. The term “smart water” points to water and wastewater infrastructure management system. A smart water system is designed to gather meaningful and actionable data about the flow, pressure and distribution of a city’s water. Smart cities encompass six important sectors that need to work in unison. These sectors...
Advantages of Using Flow Meters to Reduce Pressure Drop
Plant operators rely on plant air pressures to maintain properly working equipment and systems. One of the most common problems affecting processing plants that utilize compressed air systems is the ability to maintain reliable air pressure throughout the distribution system. Insufficient air pressures may be due to undersized distribution piping, but it’s more commonly found that the cause is flow restrictions in the distribution system such as filters, check valves, and fittings, as well as flow meters...
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...
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...
