Efficient Water Management: A Key to Building Smart Cities! #GrundfosIndia

September, 2017: The
Smart Cities campaign has been high on India’s agenda as this is perceived as
the step towards building a sustainable and developed country. A smart city
needs to have an environment that is suitable to accommodate the requirements
of the progressive urban population such as transportation, connectivity,
uninterrupted power and water & wastewater management to name a few.
According to Indian Ministry of Urban
Development
, 60% of India’s population will live in cities by 2050. This means
that there will be stress on our cities to deliver more services with limited
resources. With India’s rapid urbanization and growing population, water demand
has already exceeded the supply. A smart city will need to ensure 24*7
uninterrupted supply of water for its development, which may not be possible if
the current scenario persists. Therefore, it is very important to take measures
to secure water through efficient water management systems.
Grundfos India, one of the leading
pump manufacturers in India, is therefore promoting the importance of efficient
water management systems in building smart cities at the ‘3rd Water
Innovation Summit 2017’
organized by Confederation of Indian Industry (CII). 

“Smart Water Management: A Key Building Block
of the Smart Cities & Villages of the Future” is the theme of this
two-day summit taking place on September 4 and 5, 2017 in New Delhi. Grundfos
India
is the gold sponsor of this Summit.
Intelligent water management systems are critical to making Smart Cities
successful. According to a WRG report, there are situations in which 40% or
more of the water that is pumped into a distribution grid is lost before it
ever reaches the consumer in cities across the world. The report goes on to
state that many cities have also found that if they simply reduce water
pressure in the grid, they also reduce leakage and minimize wear and tear on
aging pipes. Such issues can be addressed by ‘smart’ technologies such as Grundfos’ Demand Driven Distribution pressure control system, which can
save both water and money by delivering optimal water pressure at any given
time. This system can automatically monitor grid use patterns with remote
sensors and adjust the water pressure accordingly using a Grundfos software
algorithm
. It reduces both water and electricity consumption by up to 20%, and
water pipes will last longer because they are less likely to crack. The return
on investment is short and in some cases down to a year.
Commenting on smart water management
solutions for Smart Cities, Gaurav
Mathur, Head – Business Development (Building Services) at Grundfos Pumps India
Pvt. Ltd
said, “Smart water management is definitely the key building block
of the Smart Cities of the future. Therefore, it is critical to invest in the
right solutions and technologies. We need water management systems that are
sustainable, reliable, energy efficient and above all intelligent”.
