The bigger the challenges, the bigger the opportunities. There is lot the country can and should do to become a wiser steward of its water resources. First among these must be creating adequate treatment infrastructure.
By 2030, water demand in India will grow to almost 1.5 trillion cubic metres with supply at approximately 740 billion cubic metres. This gap will need to be bridged by several initiatives primary of which should be Private-public partnerships (PPP) since the government cannot carry out a task of such multitude on it’s own and will require the private sector to also chip in. However the government shall need to provide incentives to the private sector for active participation.
Significantly, Schneider Electric has longstanding global expertise in both the water industry and energy management. Based upon this, solutions are designed for water and wastewater treatment.
These are powered by Eco Struxure—an Active Energy Management Architecture. One such customised water-wastewater solution is the simple, ready-to-go, scalable Energy Optimization System. This Energy Management Information System (EMIS) helps manage and optimize customers’ energy at the plant level and across multiple plants and/or sites.
A Modular Water Management Solution
EMIS can save utilities up to 5 per cent just by making real-time energy intelligence available to operators and managers. This intelligence is actionable and can help find ways of cutting operating costs by up to 25 per cent. On average, energy consumption can account for up to 30 per cent of a site’s operating costs.
Based upon its modular design, the Energy Optimization System allows customers to utilize only the functions they need. Later, as energy management needs and investment capacities evolve, these can be scaled up.
