BECA at French congress for social housing in Lille

The French social housing federation (USH) congress took place from the 24 to 26 September 2013 in Lille. The annual event outlines current and future trends in the social housing sector. This year, BECA and other smart metering projects were among the main topics of the congress.

During the congress, major international companies and utilities presented their products for smart metering. The BECA partner in France, DELPHIS, provided a stand presenting the solutions and services developed. The project drew a lot of attention as a European solution, developed especially for social and public housing companies.  Visitors of the stand were especially interested in the savings generated by both RUAS and RMS.  Among other major concerns were the interoperability of the technical devices, the property of the data collected and the potential for wide scale replication in their stock.
