Water Utility Management

Water and electrical supply are two of the main concerns for public authorities. The demand of these resources grow as fast as the population in urban areas so they would become scarcer with the pass of the years. A Technavio report states that the use of smart water management technologies such as Big Data, sensoring and monitoring in real-time can help save more than USD 12 billion revenues for utilities annually.

Some of the areas where IoT developments can improve smart water infrastructures are drainage or water supply plans, leakage detection services, network performance optimization and GIS management. The project called iWesla, which stands for Improving Water Efficiency and Safety in Living Areas, is a CPSE Labs funded by the European Union´s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program. The consortium is formed by A-CING, Indra, Novelti and the Universidad Politecnica de Madrid (UPM). The wireless sensor networks developed in iWesla are based on Waspmote Sensor Platform. A-CING (Aqua-Consult Ingenieros), a consulting and engineering company specialized in water management projects and ICT-based environmental solutions using wireless communications trusted the Sensor Platform due to its modularity and scalability.
