Managing water cycles.
Water is a foundation of almost every sector of the global economy be it agricultural, industrial or commercial, making it one of the most valuable resources on earth. With increasing population and climate change, freshwater demand is predicted to exceed supply by 2030. Better management of the worlds water is a vital necessity, and IoT based technology is expected to be a significant part of the solution.
Smart water is more than measuring flow from storage areas to final consumption points, it’s management of every part of the water cycle, from sourcing to treatment to delivery, to consumption and reclamation. Increasing water demand is a global socio-economic and environmental issue that governments and the private sector is working to address. IoT can provide continuous data that allows water managers to measure, communicate, analyse and make decisions that improve the system and the overall smart water cycle.
