Published on

To resolve upcoming shortages in clean drinking water, Waternomics will explore technologies and methodologies needed to successfully reduce water consumption from households, companies and municipalities. Waternomics is a three year, EU-funded project that started in February 2014 and will evaluate its results in three real life experiments in Italy, Greece and Poland.

Waternomics Project Overiew

  1. 1. @WATERNOMICS_EU Project co-funded by the European Commission within the 7th Framework Program (Grant Agreement No. 619660) ICT FOR WATER RESOURCE MANAGEMENT
  2. 2. @WATERNOMICS_EU www.waternomics.eu2 THE WATER CHALLENGE • Global energy and water demand is expected to rise 40% over the next 20 years • By 2025, 1.8 billion people will live in water scarce regions and two thirds subjected to water stress • 20-40% of Europe’s water is being wasted • Water supply and sanitation is a large energy consumer. – Represents 19% of electricity and 30% of natural gas consumption in California • Europe has the opportunity to pursue a global leadership position in water-related ICT technologies
  3. 3. @WATERNOMICS_EU www.waternomics.eu3 Concrete Objectives •  To introduce demand response and accountability principles (water footprint) in the water sector •  To engage consumers in new interactive and personalized ways that bring water efficiency to the forefront and leads to changes in water behaviours •  To empower corporate decision makers and municipal area managers with a water information platform together with relevant tools and methodologies to enact ICT-enabled water management programs •  To promote ICT enabled water awareness using airports and water utilities as pilot examples •  To make possible new water pricing options and policy actions by combining water availability and consumption data WATERNOMICS will provide personalised and actionable information on water consumption and water availability to individual households, companies and cities in an intuitive & effective manner at relevant time-scales for decision making
