Water management is an area I’ve been watching with some interest and after today I wouldn’t be surprised if my little corner of cleantech got a little more crowded. According to a new forecast from Pike Research, in just six short years, global smart water meter installations will reach 31 million. That’s a huge spike from just 5.2 million in 2009. Little wonder, then, that IBM, Oracle and SAP are eyeing the space. But it must be asked, where are all the startups? Don’t be shy, tweet hello here: @pedrohernandez.
