The SYNCSEN Demonstration action (DEMOSYNCSEN) is a direct follow-on of the very successful SYNCSEN FP7-SME-2007-1 ‘Research for SME’s’ project (Grant Agreement number: 222322) that came to a successful conclusion in January 2011. The RTD tasks of the SYNCSEN project resulted in an Automatic Metering Reading (AMR) system that included smart meters (Hardware and Software) and a collection system (network protocols and algorithms). The system has been tested in a controlled real case scenario. However, further verifications and minor improvements need to be done before entering the market. The main purpose of this project is to share common resources amongst the consortium partners to validate that the RTD technology created in SYNCSEN can be launched into the water utility market. The project aims to bridge the gap between the research results and the final marketable product; with focus on the specific necessities of the European water utilities sector and adding new business opportunities to this market.
