I work in the Energy & Utilities team for Capgemini Consulting in Belgium. My team and I are working with utilities & water clients to shape and drive the success of their smart metering programme, exploiting and securing smart data (GDPR conform), reshaping the relationship with the customers by transforming data into services and setting up digital prepayment .
In this context I am deeply involved in the first mass roll out for smart water meters and smart valves in Europe. I am highly involved in an innovative and potentially disruptive project to install smart water meters for all households in the city of Antwerp. Approximately 205,000 smart meters will be installed over a period of 3 years (till 2021). It will allow water meters to be read remotely every day using the Sigfox connectivity system for the Internet of Things.
