Waternomics Methodology Overview

  1. 1. @WATERNOMICS_EU www.waternomics.eu2 INTRODUCTION
  2. 2. @WATERNOMICS_EU www.waternomics.eu3 WIDE VARIETY OF END-USERS Domestic Environment Corporate Environment Public Environment Waternomics Methodology targets a wide variety of end-users The “standards-based approach ensure the repeatibility of the results in different environments
  3. 3. @WATERNOMICS_EU www.waternomics.eu4 STANDARD BASED PROCESS The Methodology is targeted to fill the gap in the water sector where not many standards are available for implementing a WMP. The methodology provides a basis for water management improvement and effectively shows how different standards, also taken from energy sector, can drive organizations and households to use water more efficiently. ISO 50002 Energy Audit A knowledge base of the methodology has been founded on the ISO 50001 processes, Plan-Do-Check-Act cycle and the integration of all the other standards criteria represents a novelty
  4. 4. @WATERNOMICS_EU www.waternomics.eu5 ITERATIVE PROCESS The Waternomics Methodology: ü Cyclic process to iteratively improve water efficiency. ü That provides a project-based approach with defined roles and a clear start and end of each iteration ü That leads to organizational changes in the areas of People, Technologies and Processes. ASSESS$ Input$ Output$ ACTIVITIES$ • Assess water context • Conduct water audit • Define water conservation strategy • Initiate water conservation action •  Business context •  Governance / Policies •  Stakeholders interviews •  Initial business case •  Water audit •  Water risk analysis •  Project team
  5. 5. @WATERNOMICS_EU www.waternomics.eu6 METHODOLOGY PHASES Assess: Determine whether or not an end user or decision maker should engage in the construct of a water management program, take water efficiency measures and/or implement a water information system.
Plan: Establish the baseline, objectives, targets and action plans necessary to deliver results Do: Implement the water management action plans.
Check: Monitor and measure processes and the key characteristics of its operations that determine energy performance against the water objectives. Act: Take actions to continually improve water performance.
  6. 6. @WATERNOMICS_EU www.waternomics.eu7 METHODOLOGY PHASES The Methodology overlap towards the ISO Standards
  7. 7. @WATERNOMICS_EU www.waternomics.eu8 MANAGEMENT TOOL The “homepage” for the Waternomics Methodology “Trello Board” A methodology may be as exhaustive as possible when listing the actions to be implemented, but without the accompanying tools will always be difficult to apply it to the real case. Through use of the Waternomics Methodology TRELLO Board, an organization can better ensure that a water management program is performed in a consistent way and have relevant information captured and communicated all in one place.
  8. 8. @WATERNOMICS_EU www.waternomics.eu9 METHODOLOGY APPLIED IN THE PILOTS • The standard based method effectively helps in implementing a WMS • It can lead to obtain a water consumption reduction excellence certification by being compliant with the most recent EU directives. • The standard approach also give the possibility to include in the methodology new standards to comply with organizations needs and governance.
  9. 9. @WATERNOMICS_EU www.waternomics.eu10 IMPACT • Define a standard based method to implement a WMS • Ensure the repeatability of the results • Provide a set of tools and references to help implement the methodology • Methodology is customizable to the needs of different end users
  10. 10. @WATERNOMICS_EU www.waternomics.eu11 INSIGHT • The use of a Standard-based Methodology and related methods make easiest the implementation of a Water management system in different environments and for different end-users • Waternomics methodology can be one step and contribution in the development of standards dedicated to water management programs
