Supply of water and gas to consumers in Shenzhen has historically been a challenge. However, significant investment in improving the delivery of both of these utility services across Shenzhen and wider Chinese markets is gathering pace.
Across China, significant investment in infrastructure is occurring with 40,000km of new gas pipeline newly connecting 470m people, and equivalent investment in water infrastructure to better control issues such as leakage and infrastructure management.
China Telecom and Huawei have partnered with Shenzhen Water and Shenzhen Gas to demonstrate the benefits that NB-IoT connected smart meters would bring to both utility companies.
This GSMA paper details efforts by the Shenzhen government to modernize its infrastructure, applying technologies like IoT to public utilities to meet the growing demand.
