Future of Utilities Conference Series

Future of Utilities Conference Series


The Future of Utilities Conference series is centred not only around water utilities but around the whole utility industry and features industry leading speakers presenting the key strategies and learning points from industry as a whole. The main conferences that are applicable to the water industry are the Future of Utilities Summit that takes place in March each year, the Innovation in Networks Conference that takes place in June each year the Water Conference that takes place in November each year.






Future of Utilities: Innovation in Networks showcases those at the forefront of industry advancement by bringing networks together to discuss how asset management is changing as a result of new sensor data and analytical capability. What is data’s true potential, and what are its costs? The future of the utilities industry will be transformed forever by data analytics, the Internet of Things and new technologies. In order to adapt to their new future, electricity, gas and water networks must rise to the challenge they face, or they risk missing their incident reduction targets and spiralling operational costs.
