PUB, Singapore’s National Water Agency, is rolling out the first phase of Smart Water Meter Programme in Singapore. This will see the installation of 300,000 smart water meters in new and existing residential, commercial and industrial premises by 2023.
The large-scale deployment of smart water meters is part of PUB’s major move towards a smart utility of the future in support of Singapore’s Smart Nation effort. By leveraging digital technologies, PUB aims to encourage behavioural change towards water conservation, optimise water demand management, and achieve greater operational efficiencies.
The first smart water meters will be installed by early 2021. PUB will review the rollout, build up its capabilities and expertise, and take into account advances in technology before implementing smart water meters for the rest of Singapore.
