  • Started in 2009.
  • Who here pays the bills at home? You have an idea of what the bifggest bills are, right? You already saw on one of Alan’s opening slides – you were paying atention, weren’t you - that energy is a significant portion of O&M costs. What % of city/county energy spend goes to W/WW?
  • Think of a city.It isbasically a system of operating systems – it has an electricitygrid, a gas distribution system, a water distribution system, all sorts of public and transportation systems, public services, commercial buildings, hospitals, homes etc.Theselegacysystemswork more or lessefficiently, but usuallyseparately, underdifferent city departments. And they are usually not designed or managed to ensureresourceefficiency and long-termsustainability.And citizensusually know there are big pain points – power outages; floodswhichcorrupt the drinking water system; congestion, whichwasteseverybody’s time and creates pollution – etc.This iswherewe come in.Our value proposition isclear & simple: wedeliverurbanefficiency - today.Our expert solutions solvetoday’simmediate challenges and most pressing pain-points. We have solutions for all the keysystems of a city: energy, mobility, water, public services, buildings.Webringrecognizedintegrationcapabilities, throughinterconnected and interoperableproducts, systems, services and softwares, to optimizeeach system and drive efficiencyfurther.We know thateach city is unique – we help develop the business model thatreallymeetseachcities’ specificneeds and helpsitachieveitsholisticsustainable vision.And last but not least, weworkwithothers. Becausewebelievethat no single companycanbuild a smart city alone; becauseeach city deserves the best-in-class global and local players; and because collaboration is in our DNA. So all this, in an nutshell, iswhatwebring to a city.Let’sseenowwhat’sbehind the words.

    8. 8. 8A comment I happened to read…●Built Infrastructure in America’s Cities is the story of the catastrophicconsequences of antiquated design and neglect, multiplied by thedisaster of increasing populations and decreasing financialresources to address our issues, especially as they relate to PublicSafety, Water, Energy, and Transportation. To add insult to injury wehave climate related challenges forcing us to broadlyconsider ecologically sustainable solutions for the first timein our modern history. What we have realized by now is that wecan no longer “build” our way out of capacity needs, and wecan’t repair our way out of the availability of our critical resources.

    11. 11. 11Smart Cities is not a concept, it’s abouturban efficiency…and it’s happening today.We must understand what it takesto make Smart Cities a reality.
    12. 12. 12It’s about Priorities
    13. 13. 13Sustainability . . ."meeting the needs of the present without compromisingthe ability of future generations to meet their own needs.""Brundtland definition"1987 Report of the World Commission on Environment and DevelopmentCentrali, PA a is a borough and ghost town in Columbia County, Pennsylvania, United States. Its population has dwindledfrom over 1,000 residents in 1981 to 12 in 2005,[1] 9 in 2007, and 10 in 2010, as a result of a mine fire burning beneath theborough since 1962. Centralia is one of the least-populated municipalities in Pennsylvania

    30. 30. 30The Greenest City in AmericaThat’s the ambitious goal that Mayor Michael A. Nutter has set forPhiladelphia. Reaching it will be an opportunity to reposition andrepurpose Philadelphia as a city of the future. For the first time indecades, changes beyond our borders—primarily rising energy prices,but also climate change and an emerging green economy—areincreasing the value of our urban assets. Philadelphia’s dense anddurable stock of housing, infrastructure and amenities position us toprosper in a carbon-constrained future.―Greenworks Philadelphia is a vision for howPhiladelphia can and should seize thismoment, building upon the assets left to us by earlierPhiladelphians and creating a better future forourselves, our children and generations still to come.‖— MAYOR MICHAEL A. NUTTER
    31. 31. 31Greenworks Highlights●Strategic plan by the city and for the city●Sustainability viewed through 5 lenses● Energy● Environment● Equity● Economy● Engagement●Plan for all Philadelphians not just the government
    32. 32. 32The Vision ofPhiladelphia on Stormwater is that thebusiness, the landholders etc need to havethe surface area able toabsorb the first1 inch of rainwater.Thus all the green in therendering here and thebyproduct of not havingto handle that water aspart of the combinedstorm and sanitary flow.

    46. 46. 46How does this apply to Smart Water?
    47. 47. 47Our world is changing before our eyesIncreased demand for energy Limited natural resourcesLimited capacity Environmental concerns
    48. 48. 48Water Wastewater Is A Large Energy ConsumerSchneider Electric – Session Title – Smart Cities for Smart Water: A Workshop• Paying the bills• One of largest monthly bills• What % of your city/county energyspend goes to W/WW ?• Dallas, TX @ 50%• Houston, TX @ 50%• Clinton, AR @ 65-70%• Tulsa, OK @ 60%• Performance Indicator• Car: MPG• What if dropped 20%• KWH/MG?• RWI pump dropped 20%• Train 1 vs. Train 2• 15% more efficient. Why?Typical City Energy Usage
    49. 49. 49Typical Breakdowns●Demand for WWW●Age of infrastructure (30+ years)●Legislative compliance●71,000+ systems in US●Shortages of in-house expertise●Reduced financial resources●Energy efficiency awareness●Energy useEnergyPumping = 87%
    50. 50. 50Water Utilities are not Immune(Top Challenges)EPA: Operational Expenses on the rise – Funding for Capital and Operations DownU.S. Drinking Water and Wastewater System ChallengesWater Scarcity A minimum of 36 states are anticipating local, regional, or statewide water shortages by 2013.ClimateChangeChanging precipitation patterns, shrinking snow packs, increasing runoff, rising sea levels,and greater saltwater intrusion will likely result in significant adaptation efforts to maintainwater resource and infrastructure services.IncreasingPopulationBetween 1950 and 2000, U.S. population nearly doubled while the demand on public supply systemsmore than tripled. Increased demands are depleting aquifers at rates exceeding their recharge.EnergyUncertaintyFewer sources of conventional fuels and increasingly expensive extraction costs are driving up oilprices, destabilizing the economy and causing global shortages and uncertainty for utility operatingbudgets.AgingInfrastructureRepairing, replacing, and upgrading aging infrastructure will cost between $300 billion to $1 trillion overthe next 20 years.

    52. 52. 52You need to ask and find the answer to:“How does the my City do … ?”(Major Initiatives)●Water Network Management through datacollection, measurement and analysis—ensuring optimalefficiency, longevity and reliability●Water Loss Management and Leak detection using real-time data and model network simulations to identify and resolveproblems—improving service●Energy and Process Management to help meetdemand, maximize resources, reduce costs and emissions, andensure regulatory compliance●Storm Water and Urban Flooding Management withhighly accurate flow and capacity information, simulationtools, and precipitation forecasts—for better preparation andresponse●Geographical Information System-based solutions thatprovide a single version of the truth—supporting coordinateddecisions across a utility’s entire enterprise
    53. 53. 53Also, find the answer to:“How does my Utility… ?”●Track Water Efficiency / Water Management KPI’s?● What is your $ / MG Produced per Plant and per System● What is your $ / MG Treated per Plant and per System● Water Lost per Water Produced, What is the yearly Production & Treated MGs● Billing Meter Accuracy●Energy Efficiency / Energy Management KPI’s?• KWH/MG Produced per Plantand per System• Energy Audit at each plant / facility• KWH/MG Treated per Plant andper System• Energy Benchmarking on processes, plant toplant, and on system basis• Utility Energy Usage and DemandRates, TOD Rates• Optimize your Energy Source (ElectricityProduced / Electricity Used)• Energy Quality & Chemical Usage • Demand Forecasting: using Weather Data &Demand Consumption• Biological Oxygen Demand( KWH/kg of BOD)• KWH / t of dry sludge• Demand Response Load (KW) • CO2 Footprint
