1 Improved Water efficiency through ICT technologies for integrated supply-Demand side manaGEmenT The research leading to these results has received funding from the European Union Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/ ), under grant agreement no This publication reflects only the author’s views and the European Union is not liable for any use that may he made of the information contained therein.

2 Introduction Collaborative, three year FP7 project ( ) Started Nov 2012 Total budget €5M-EU grant €3.4M The aim of iWIDGET is to advance knowledge and understanding about smart metering technologies in order to develop novel, robust, practical and cost-effective methodologies and tools to manage urban water demand in households across Europe by reducing wastage by improving utility understanding of end-user demand, and by reducing customer water and energy costs

3 Introduction The main scientific challenges for iWIDGET are: management and extraction of useful information from vast amounts of high-resolution consumption data, development of customised intervention and awareness campaigns to influence behavioural change, the integration of iWIDGET concepts into a set of decision- support tools for water utilities and consumers, applicable in differing local conditions. Filename & Date (Century Gothic Bold 11p)

4 Scientific Targets iWIDGET will investigate: How best to provide the dynamic accurate measurement and data transfer of useful information about end-user water consumption How best to use consumption data to improve the operation of utilities and influence end-users to modify their behaviour How to arrive at the best business model to convert a promising technology into a useful and cost-effective product How to demonstrate and validate the new methodologies on two case studies in Portugal (Aguas de Barcelos)and the UK (Southern Water)
