Smart metering in India: an encouraging market

India is one of the fastest-growing economies in the world, but its industrial growth has been limited by inadequate energy availability, especially electricity transmission, distribution losses, and a mismatch of supply and demand in electricity.

The Indian Ministry of Power is advocating for investment to improve the efficiency and reliability of the power system for sustainable growth. Initial steps towards Smart Metering in India have been encouraging, with the market for electricity meters both for static and electromagnetic witnessing a rapid expansion of 32% between 2008–2009 and 2010–2011. Under the India Smart Grid Task Force (ISGTF), a Smart Meter Task Group was formed to discuss the development of cost-effective metering solutions that can be applied within the Indian context. Some remarkable Smart Metering pilots are the “Puducherry Smart Grid Project,” with more than 1400 SMs equipped with different technologies; the “Bangalore Pilot Project,” which will reach 2000 residential and commercial customers; and the deployment started in 2008 in New Delhi, where SMs include automated meter reading and a prepaid system utilizing PLC technology. India will install 130 million SMs equipped with both PLC and wireless technologies by 2021.

Global coordination for water security

coordination

The World Bank Water Global Practice, the 2030 Water Resources Group, the Global Water Partnership, the World Water Council, and the UN Global Compact’s CEO Water Mandate are five global multi-stakeholder water partnerships that announced plans to cooperate on water security.

Their commitment follows the High-Level Panel on Water (HLPW) forecast of a potential 40% shortfall in water availability by 2030.

They aim to accelerate progress on the international water agendam and to double water infrastructure investment over the next five years.

The five groups recognized the value of partnerships as an important means of implementing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

More than 800m people need to travel 30 mins for safe water

travel

According with the report “the State of the World’s Water 2018”, water inequality is increasing in the world.

More than 800 million people need to travel and queue for at least 30 minutes to access safe supplies. The problem of access is increasingly complicated by climate change, pollution and a growing global population. The worst affected country is Eritrea, where only 19% of the population have basic access to water. It is followed by Papua New Guinea, Uganda, Ethiopia, the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Somalia, all of which have rates of between 37% and 40%. The world still has much work to do to achieve the UN’s sustainable development goal 6, which is to provide safe water and sanitation to everyone by 2030.

Benefits of wastewater use in agriculture

wastewater

Agriculture accounts for about 75 percent of all world water uses.

Agriculture water reuse is an important sustainability, conservation and cost-reduction opportunity. Many national and international organizations have recently recognized benefits of wastewater use in agriculture:

  •  the associated decrease in pressure on freshwater sources.
  •  wastewater reuse increases agricultural production in regions experiencing water shortages, thus contributing to food safety.
  • the avoided cost of exctracting groundwater resources: energy required to pump groundwater can represent up to 65% of irrigation activities.
  • the nutrients naturally present in wastewater allow savings on fertilizer expenses to be realized, thus ensuring a closed and environmentally favorable nutrient cycle that avoids the indirect return of macro-and microelements to water bodies.

In Belgium cogeneration “may replace the nuclear power station”

cogeneration

Belgium’s cogeneration operators claim they are in pole position to replace nuclear power plants scheduled for phase out in the middle of the next decade.

Cogeneration power stations are currently supplying 18% of energy consumed in Belgium. They are likely to supply an additional capacity of 1,000 megawatts by 2025, according to the sector organisation Cogen. The gas-fired power station demand may be reduced to 7, if the industry focuses upon the development of cogeneration.

Cogeneration power stations may be constructed far more quickly, and without European authorization.

Towards Water-Wise Cities: the IWA principles

IWA

Cities are rapidly expanding and they cannot function without water, a resource under increasing pressure.

The IWA’s (International Water Association) Principles for Water Wise Cities aim to provide the necessary frameworks and principles to assist urban leaders to develop and implement their vision for sustainable urban water, and resilient planning and design in their cities. The ultimate goal of these Principles is to encourage collaborative action, underpinned by a shared vision, so that local governments, urban professionals, and individuals actively engage in addressing and finding solutions on urban water management challenges.

Cogeneration in the UK: an efficient solution

Cogeneration is the most efficient way to meet heat and power needs, cutting energy waste by up to 30%.

There are more than 2,000 businesses and sites in the UK which use CHP to support their operations. More than 111,000 jobs are located on these sites and CHP is helping to improve manufacturing productivity, control energy costs and protect long-term employment. CHP is also used by hundreds of heat networks, providing heating through a network of pipes to homes and businesses in UK cities. New CHP plants ensure flexibility and efficiency: they are able to respond to market signals, providing more generation when needed and less when lower carbon generation is available. Furthermore, CHP saves carbon as long as it displaces other, higher carbon gas and coal power stations which do not recover their heat.

A Scottish project aims to promote the uptake of residential CHP on the Outer Hebrides islands.

Housing agency Tighean Innse Gall, Lews Castle College of the University of Highlands and Islands and Finland’s University of Oulu have joined forces to develop a project, which aims to promote the uptake of residential combined heat and power (CHP) on the Outer Hebrides islands.

The project will look at remote households’ heat and power needs. The partners plan to design and manufacture an affordable 20 kWth/3-6 kWe micro-CHP system that will run on locally-sourced solid biomass, and to set up trial systems across the region.

Good practice guidelines for water data management policy

During the 28th UN-Water Meeting held in Rome, the Good Practice Guidelines for Water Data Management Policy is officially launched.

These good practice guidelines are intended for officers responsible for formulating and implementing government strategy to improve water information, with the aim of improving water policy, planning, management and operations.

The themes discussed are: identify different types of water data and their uses; prioritize water management objectives; strengthen water data institutions; establish sustainable water data monitoring systems; adopt water data standards; and implement effective water data information systems. Making the case for water reform globally, the Guidelines highlight the growing risk posed by deteriorating water security, due to a combination of factors that include rapid population growth and industrialization, over-extraction, widespread pollution and climate change.

More than 200 million European households will have smart meters in 2023

The report “Smart Metering in Europe”, from Berg Insight, analyses the latest developments for smart metering (electricity and gas) in Europe.

This market has reached a stage of early maturity and more than 200 million European households will have smart meters in 2023.

Almost 40 percent of the 281 million electricity customers in EU had a smart meter at the end of 2017, a share that is set to increase to 70 percent over the coming five years. Annual shipments of smart electricity meters will reach a peak of around 28 million units per year in 2019/2020.

The majority of the new installations will take place in France, Spain and the UK, with significant contribution also coming from Austria and the Netherlands. After Italy, which had a head-start, Spain was the first major country in Western Europe to begin mass deployments at the start of this decade.

France and the UK have started to ramp up the rate of installations, which will peak at an aggregate level of 10–12 million units per year in the period 2018–2020.
