EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

This report helps senior executives within the urban development ecosystem and public sector authorities to understand new services that help urban communities curb their environmental impacts. In March 2011, Veolia Water and Orange launched the m2ocity joint venture, a new model for operating low-power smart metering networks to support municipal water distribution utilities in France. m2ocity is still in the early stages of its development, but the win of a five year contract to deploy and operate a network of 550,000 smart water meters in the Paris metropolitan area provides a valuable proof point of the proposition. m2ocity’s network technology can support the collection of other environmental data such as electricity and gas, an opportunity that m2ocity plans to harness in the long run, once its operation of smart water networks is established in France. To be able to expand its value proposition to client segments beyond water distributors in France, m2ocity will need to establish independent expertise from its founders Orange and Veolia Water.
