Let the numbers do the talking
Available on Kamstrup’s website, the tool includes 13 different areas where smart metering can create value ranging from remote reading and water loss to frost bursts and customer service.
Once a utility has chosen the area they wish to dive into, they simply enter the relevant numbers. Shortly after submitting the information, they receive an email with the result of the calculation giving them an idea of the value they can expect to gain in that area by switching to smart meters and automated meter reading.
As an example, a utility will be able to save a lot of time by switching from manual readings to automatic meter reading, while at the same time massively improve the quality of their data. Additionally, with frequent data from automatic meter reading, utilities are able to detect leaks in the network by making daily water balances comparing the volume of water that leaves the utility with the actual consumption. By calculating the annual costs related to these activities and comparing them to the possible savings, the utility is able to better assess the potential.
