Smart meters for water distribution in South Africa

Managing scarce resources such as water and electricity becomes a primary goal in many development programs around the world. Modern smart metering technologies offer a reliable and an affordable way to monitor usage. In the Metertalk project a dedicated solution was developed for urban and rural areas in developing countries.
The product has been tested in various pilots in South Africa.
The project has been done by the Dutch companies The Fiber House Europe, TechToBizz and Vitelec, together with the South African partners Overberg Water Board, and Itakane. It was supported by NL Agency.
