What is the Internet of Water (IoW)
The role of IoT in smart water management
It is estimated that the global water losses from drinking water supply networks are 34.6 billion liters per day. A recent study conducted by the Global Water Intelligence (GWI) world’s top 40 water markets shows that the water loss is properly managed in Netherland with 4 percent, Denmark with 6 percent to Japan having 7 percent and very poorly managed in countries like India with almost 50 percent of total supplied water.
The need of the hour is to change the culture and mindset of using water as a free resource.
By tariffing water in a “Pay as you use” model, offering a plethora of discrete Prepaid and Postpaid plans, tailored to the needs of the consumers would be the first step towards creating sensitivity around consumption and better use of water, avoiding wastage.
It refers to the ability to interconnect devices through the internet in the water value chain – from the reservoir to pumping station to the distribution network to our home. These connected devices in turn help monitor and control the state, flow, and volume of water through the Smart Water Networks, Automatic Metering Infrastructure, Remote Control Monitoring & Management Systems.
1. Water monitoring solutions to monitor the quality of tap water across Indian Infrastructure.
2. Technologies to detect real-time leakages and waste of factories in rivers and other natural water bodies.
3. Technologies for remote monitoring of water level variations in rivers, dams, and reservoirs, for proactive disaster management.
4. Solutions and technologies for creating Water as Service (Billable Service) and help water utilities in creating an impact in culture change and make the world realize that water doesn’t come free or cheap; it’s a scarce resource.
Remote monitoring and control technologies like SCADA and IoT technologies should be used to not only conserve and maintain the quality of water for the citizens of the country but also use it to create a sustainable and scalable water economy for water utilities, says Sunil Best, CEO, NetConnect Global
