No matter the European country, all Utilities have a regulatory responsibility to mitigate the risk of flooding and extreme weather and to reduce the physical risk to assets to be as low as reasonably possible. The growing numbers of Smart Meters across Europe is demonstrative of the increased tempo of the transition to a smart grid, which in turn will bring more complexity and the need for digitised processes.
