Water scarcity, stress, and pollution present ongoing global challenges that are poised to intensify with rising demand and the impacts of climate change on water cycles; global demand for fresh water will outstrip supply by 40% by 2030 (UN Water Commission). With dependence on legacy infrastructure and hardware, the water industry has material room to improve to manage for current and future needs; In Europe, 25 % of drinking water is lost, with some countries losing more than 40% of their drinking water before it reaches consumers. InfoTiles’ digital water solution offers a clear avenue to tackle these challenges in a cost-effective manner, enabling utilities to increase data quality by 30-50%, provide 25-40% OPEX savings in wastewater treatment, and reduce breakdowns and downtime by 70% and 40% respectively.
