IWN recently ran a Digital Metering Collaboration Workshop at Crown Conference Centre in Melbourne, after recent survey results revealed that a significant interest exists in this area.

Presentations were given by industry employees and relevant experts on current digital metering projects, business cases, digital innovations and the lessons that have been learnt in this space thus far.

IWN’s Assistant Program Director, Rowan Keeble, said that the event was well attended and proved to be a beneficial collaborative exercise.

"We had great support for the recent Intelligent Water Networks' digital metering collaboration workshop, with representatives from all over Victoria meeting to share lessons on digital metering,” Mr Keeble said.

Following the presentations, those in attendance were asked to work shop a series of questions to promote open communication and facilitate connections across the industry.

Mr Keeble also noted the importance of knowledge sharing with regard to new technologies.

"It is essential that the water industry continues to monitor these digital metering advances and share their experiences to help capitalise on the benefits available."
