How to open the European market for Chinese water meters

[China Instrument Network Industry Focus] Before Xiao Bian had said that smart watch companies should seize the opportunity to grasp the European market (please click for more details), this time we still keep our eyes on Europe and look at the water meter market.

Water Resources in Europe Throughout Europe, energy industry accounts for about 44% of total water use, agricultural water accounts for 24%, public water accounts for 21%, and industrial water accounts for only about 11%. Regional water use varies widely: In southern Europe, agricultural water accounts for more than half of the total local water use, and some even exceed 80%; while more than half of Western Europe's water is used in the energy industry. Excessive exploitation of groundwater and prolonged drought have made many local water demands and available water sources tend to be at the “insolvency” threshold.

In the face of this shortage of resources, the introduction of water meters has had a positive impact on water conservation. For example, the amount of public water supply in eastern Europe began in the early 1990s. Because of the installation of water meters and the introduction of better water price mechanisms, it has shown a downward trend. As a result, Europe had also introduced a “Green New Deal” before, demanding that the price of water reflect the true cost of water and that the price of water must be linked to the amount of water consumed. In this respect, metering has played an important role and it is necessary to promote it in all sectors in Europe.

The European Smart Water Meter New Technology As a basic facility to respond to future energy security, smart grid and sustainable development of the Internet of Things, the European Commission and EU member states took various actions, including policies and regulations, to actively stimulate smart meter technology within the European Union. The commercialization of the application. With the continuous increase in the penetration rate of smart meters in the EU, the average penetration rate of smart meters in each member country exceeds 60%. The EU smart meter universal action plan has entered the final stage of sprint. The European Union's Seventh R&D Framework Program (FP7) provides partial funding. The European WIMBEX R&D team, which is formed by the industrial and scientific communities of several member states of the European Union, has successfully developed the “smart water meter” technology and modularization using mature smart meter technology. The production process and series of products have passed the assessment and appraisal by the European Commission expert group.

The intelligent water meter technology and series of products developed by the European WIMBEX team can meet various practical needs of water production and consumption enterprises, water suppliers and water distribution networks, and household consumption users. Intelligent water meters, water production and consumption are counted in liters per ton to increase consumer awareness of water conservation. The smart water meter realizes digitized readings and data transmission, greatly reducing its own energy consumption (almost no power consumption). Therefore, the power distribution network supplies power to independent rechargeable batteries. Real-time monitoring of the control center of the water network's intelligent water meter can automatically generate bills based on agreements reached between water suppliers and consumer users. Consumers at home can use the Internet, tablet, or mobile phone to learn about the accurate water use at home.

China's water meters in Europe In recent years, China's water meters have also opened up a certain market in Europe, mainly including Italy, France, Spain, Portugal, Hungary, the United Kingdom, and Switzerland. In addition, there are also five neighboring countries including Russia, with the largest number of exports. It is Italy. The European market mainly presents the following features:

·Europe countries have high requirements for the quality of water meters. Imported water meters must pass the EEC certification. They must also comply with national standards, such as the German JIN standard and the British BS standard.

· The styles of European water meters are mostly dry magnetic, liquid-sealed, single-flow and volumetric. Most of Italy uses liquid-enclosed water meters, and most of the UK use volumetric water meters. Its measurement accuracy level is higher, speed type B or C, volumetric C or D.

· Most of China's water meters are exported to Europe in the form of OEMs. The prototypes of exporting production plants are certified by the importing country's agents to the certification body, and then the exported products are marked with the trademarks of the importing country's agents before they can be exported.
