  20. 20. @WATERNOMICS_EU www.waternomics.eu20 HORIZONTAL INTEGRATION Unmanaged pressurised water network Managed pressurised water network Open flow wastewater network Surface water and groundwater
  21. 21. @WATERNOMICS_EU www.waternomics.eu21 VERTICAL INTEGRATION Energy storage in water Rainwater harvesting Wastewater energy factory Raw material recovery Heat recovery Internet of Things
  22. 22. @WATERNOMICS_EU www.waternomics.eu22 CONCLUSION Waternomics shows that a Smart Water System for consumers does create end-user value For Smart Water Systems to be successful they need to be horizontally aligned, covering drinking water and wastewater systems and vertically aligned with building management systems and energy management systems. Smart Water propositions need to be tailored to the specific needs of customer segments. No one-size-fits-all solutions.
