AMI-Meter Data Analytics
A growing number of water utilities are implementing advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) to frequently capture detailed data from customer meters. With this expanded water usage information, utilities can better engage with customers, respond to billing questions, enforce water conservation policies, manage meter performance, and better quantify and reduce the level of non-revenue water.
To realize benefits beyond meter readings for customer billing, utilities need to understand the improvement opportunities enabled by the new AMI data set and associated data processing and analysis tools. This webcast focused on AMI-Meter Data Analytics (4741), which included seven water utility participants, each with multiple years of experience using AMI meter data for utility and customer benefit. This project presents the practical application of AMI meter data analytics for utilities. The presentation summarized the leading business practices using AMI data and correlations with meter test results.
