Waternomics Results and Impact

Abstract: 

The Waternomics project aims to reduce water consumption of municipalities, corporations and domestic users by providing water managers and consumers with timely information about water usage and water availability. The project makes information about the water services system available to stakeholders in real-time in order to stimulate water saving. By employing smart water technology, the project (i) enables the detailed and real-time measurement of water flows and usage, (ii) supports analyses of water consumption patterns and (iii) provides key recommendations on how to increase water efficiency.

The project started in Febrary 2014 and ends in January 2017. As part of its final event series, Waternomics will be presented in Insight@NUIG seminar. During this seminar, Wassim Derguech from Insight@NUIG will give an overview of the main project results and impacts.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement no 619660.
