4 What drives cities to become smarter? “A smart city is characterized by the integration of technology into a strategic approach to sustainability, citizen well-being, and economic development.”What drives cities to become smarter?So what role do Cities plays in this energy challenge.
5 The Energy challenge and the cities Cities today……and by 2050Earth’s surfaceWorld populationWorld populationYears todouble theurban capacitydeveloped overthe past yearsGlobal energyconsumptionThe Energy challenge will be won, or lost, in the cities.Cities today are2% of the earth surface50% of world population,75% of global energy consumption80% of global CO2 emissionsand cities are growing: they will soon be and soon 70% of world population, meaning that we must build the same urban capacity in the next 40 years as in the past 4000 years.Obviously, almost all urban growth will be in the new economies.But urban regeneration is taking place in all so-called mature economies.So this is a global challenge.Global CO2emissions
6 Cities must become smarter by becoming more efficient, more sustainable and more liveable Better information sharingIncreased control over city systemsReduced Carbon emissions and energy consumptionDecreased need for massive infrastructure investmentsHigher quality of life for city residentsIncreased global competitiveness

8 The Drivers for Smart Water Networks Rapidly Rising Urban PopulationEfficiency!Smart City DriversGrowing Pressure on InfrastructureIncreasing Scarcity of ResourcesRising Consumption LevelsInefficient, Overloaded & Aging InfrastructureEffects of Climate ChangeDemand for Better City ServicesEconomic Pressure on CitiesIncreasing Scarcity of Water SuppliesIncreasing Threat of Water Hazards e.g. Urban FloodingNeed for Dependable, High-Quality WaterIncreasing Water ConsumptionCities cover just 2% of the earth’s surface, but contain 50% of the world’s population, consume 75% of global energy and give off 80% of greenhouse gas emissions. By 2050, they will be home to 70% of the people in the world. Clearly our common challenge to minimize our carbon footprint and operate sustainably will be won or lost in the cities.The drivers for the smart city are similar, and in most cases supersets, of the Smart Water Network Drivers. Rising consumption results from growing populations, as do growing pressures on the physical infrastructure and its associated maintenance costs. All the while resources are becoming scarce and costly, but the constituents want more, better and cheaper.The smart water drivers are the same, with a an emphasis on supply and delivery. Climate change is providing challenges to aging infrastructure. Dryer zones are losing valuable water resources through leaky delivery systems, while zones such as this one are having older infrastructure overwhelmed by increasingly common extreme weather events.So, how do we provide more with less? Efficiency.Pressure to Improve Efficiency & Reduce Operational CostsSmart Water Networks Drivers
9 The Smart City / Smart Water approach Traditional ApproachSmart ApproachIncreased demand met by building more capital-intensive infrastructureIncreased demand met by making infrastructure more efficient, not largerDepartments operate in silos with little or no information sharingInformation sharing enables coordinated action and minimized network disruptionsTons of data collected by systems but not usedDecision support & business intelligence tools used to optimize performanceA Smart Water Network is a key component of a Smart City99
10 Why Change How We Operate? Total energy consumption of U.S. water utilities is estimated to be 56 billion kWh, equaling $4 billion annually in operational expenditures1.California’s water and wastewater utilities energy consumption comprise 19% of the total energy usage in that state2.Between 5-10 billion Kw/h of power generated in the U.S. is spent in water that is either leaked or not paid for by customers3.The U.S.G.S. estimates that water lost from water distribution systems is 1.7 trillion gallons per year at a national cost of $2.6 billion per year4Sources:Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), “Ensuring a Sustainable Future: An Energy Management Guidebook for Wastewater and Water Utilities”, 2008California Energy Commission. “California´s Water- Energy Relationship.

18 Data Solutions for Smart Utility Implementation Geographical Information System-based solutions that provide a single version of the truth—supporting coordinated decisions across a utility’s entire enterpriseWater network management through data collection, measurement and analysis—ensuring optimal efficiency, longevity and reliabilityEnergy and process management to help meet demand, maximize resources, reduce costs and emissions, and ensure regulatory complianceStorm water and urban flooding management with highly accurate flow and capacity information, simulation tools, and precipitation forecasts—for better preparation and responseWater loss management and leak detection using real-time data and model network simulations to identify and resolve problems—improving service
20 SCADA + GISDisplay of SCADA on GIS screens or vice versa can easily be accomplished.Ties static data such as asset location with status info in the SCADAProvides a key link between supervisory operations and business decisions
22 SCADA + Asset Management Can drive more data that managers can use while breaking down the typical silos that exist within a utility.Allows important information to be shared across departments.Can help achieve a city’s energy efficiency goals by monitoring key assets at each plant.Key assets could be ones that use a tremendous amount of energy such as pumps and blowers.Dashboards with KPIs listed can help determine which assets to focus on.
23 SCADA + Asset Management - Des Moines, IA Their (Des Moines) initial plans were to optimize performance of assets that are energy hogs (blowers and pumps) but they discovered that, in the case of four of their 2,000 hp blowers, just knowing which units were operating most efficiently and using those units as the primary air movers provided results that exceeded their initial project goals.Just understanding what they were already doing well contributed significant returns. Being able to detect process deterioration is also of high value, which the KPI dashboard can alert them to.This integration has resulted in annual energy savings of $40,000 at one plant alone.
25 80 % 20 % INVESTMENT SCADA SYSTEM DISTRIBUTION NETWORK WATERWORKS When the Client wants a Single Party responsible/ accountable for engineering, furnishing, implementing, testing and servicing the Solution (for example, to avoid finger-pointing between hardware vendors, SCADA vendor, Integrator, and operations staff).When there is a lot of non-standard “legacy” equipment or “modified” protocols to be monitored/ controlled or custom applications required.When IT security, corporate IT policies, health monitoring, and redundancy are critical; if the IT group is heavily involved; or if security audits/ certification is required.When there is a need to interconnect/ integrate different SCADA products (eg. to interface to Enterprise Applications)When the SCADA must be integrated with third-party systems and applications such as OSISoft PI, GIS systems, EAM systems, CRM systems, CMMS systems, SAP, hydraulic models, etc.When the Solution must be highly distributed or involves complex multi-control room architectures or operational strategies.When it is primarily services (rather than products) that are required.When a “no hit” cutover between systems is criticalWhen 7/24 live support and a direct Client – Solution Provider relationship over the long term is important.When ongoing access to a highly experienced team with both industry and SCADA experience (for example to support ongoing customization and custom application development by the Client) is important.When a fully-developed Training Organization that supports customized and advanced training in various formats is important.When there are custom Technical Documentation requirements (eg. integration of existing procedural documentation with product user documentation, associated “context sensitive” help).When cost is not the primary factor in the selection process.INVESTMENT
