Business drivers for adopting smart water technology
Author : SANDER SMIT(1), MIREIA TUTUSAUS(2) , EDWARD CURRY(3) , THOMAS MESSERVEY(4) & ZENO D’ANDREA(4)
ABSTRACT
The Waternomics project aims to reduce the water consumption of municipalities, corporations and domestic users by
providing water managers and consumers alike with timely and actionable information about water usage and water
availability. Understanding the social, economic and environmental drivers for introducing the necessary smart water
technologies helps shaping the architecture of a water information system. To get a better understanding of these drivers,
Waternomics conducted workshops and interviews with various stakeholders from industry and municipalities in Greece,
Italy, Ireland and the Netherlands. The results showed a wide range of ways in which water was managed and water
conservation programs where implemented. From the research, the Waternomics water information system will be
designed, developed and validated
