 Obiettivo del progetto (Objective)

Urban water use is highly dynamic, variable over time and space, and is expected to constantly increase in the coming years both in Europe and worldwide. Expanding existing infrastructures to access farther or deeper water resources might be one option, but the economic and energy costs could be unsustainably high. There is a need for water demand management strategies (incentives, water pricing, awareness campaigns) to be efficient and sustainable technically, economically, and socially. Yet, individual and collective behavioural response to specific water conservation policies might significantly vary with economic drivers as well as socio-psychological determinants within the same urban context.

The SmartH2O project aims at providing water utilities, the municipalities, and citizens, with an ICT enabled platform to design, develop and implement better water demand management policies, which are based on a shared understanding and motivation by the water users, thus leading to a reduction in water consumption, while not compromising the quality of life.

SmartH2O builds a bi-directional communication stream between citizens and the water utility: in one direction, user behavioural data are collected through smart meters and an online social participation application (social game); in the other, awareness campaigns and price signals are delivered through the same app to inform the users on how to save water and money.

SmartH2O will be tested in two real world cases: in the United Kingdom (in the London area), and in Switzerland (in Canton Ticino). In these two exemplary cases, the SmartH2O project will enable a constructive and continuous interaction between citizens and water utilities in the management of our most precious resource: water.
