Energy efficient homes could save households $1,000-plus a year on bills

According to a recent report from the Australian Council of Social Service and the Brotherhood of St Laurence, Government policies to drive higher energy...

According to a recent report from the Australian Council of Social Service and the Brotherhood of St Laurence, Government policies to drive higher energy efficiency standards for existing housing stock could deliver electricity bill savings for average Australian households: from $289 for apartments to $1,139 for houses.  And yet little has been done, so far, by either federal or state governments. “It’s bewildering that we keep talking about energy efficiency, and governments agree that it’s common sense, but do nothing about it,” said ACOSS Senior Energy Advisor Kellie Caught.

New York’s plan to make 50,000 buildings

New York City is on the verge of enacting one of the most ambitious citywide building energy efficiency laws in the country, aimed at getting its biggest buildings — including landmarks like the Empire State Building and Trump Tower — to shave their carbon emissions footprint by 40 percent by 2030 or face financial penalties.  Buildings contribute a huge share of New York’s carbon emissions—nearly 70 percent, thanks to normal everyday use, but exacerbated by inefficient heating and cooling systems—so they’re an obvious target for regulation. Backers of the bill say it’s an important step to help meet New York state’s broader climate change goals, and could pave the way for similar efforts in cities across the country. Opponents say the bill could place overly costly and potentially impossible energy-reduction demands on the city’s biggest buildings, while exempting too many older and less-efficient buildings to be effective.

Growing demand for cogeneration systems. Overview by 2028

The cogeneration system allows us to have multiple sources of energy from a primary energy source, which can be used as per our need. Considering global warming and finite energy sources, the cogeneration system market is likely to grow with innovation and new technology in the future. The global market of cogeneration system is expected to grow in the period 2019-2028.

This market is likely to register strong growth in Europe and North America region due to the increasing R&D for more efficient cogeneration system.  Natural gas is widely used in a cogeneration system. It is available in large quantities, mainly in Russia, U.S., Canada and Iran. Due to decreasing price and large availability, supportive government regulations are expected to drive cogeneration system demand soon.

How the Arabian peninsula is tackling its looming water crisis

The Arabian peninsula is one of the driest parts of the world. All the countries in the region are situated in arid and extremely arid zones. Water scarcity is further worsened by rapidly growing demands due to rapid population growth, unsustainable consumption, climate change and weak management institutions and regulations. Water scarcity erodes the socio-economic sustainability of the communities that depend on the depleting storage. For tackling its looming water crisis, the Arabian peninsula is adopting a new approach to water management. The first trend is a greater focus on efficiency. All stakeholders are voicing concerns about the efficiency and environmental impact of the water sector. Leaky networks are a key area of concern: leaks cause 30-50 per cent of the water carried to be lost. water authorities are issuing more tenders to assess and repair the damage to their networks. The second trend is a far greater interest in technologies that can improve the efficiency, sustainability and energy consumption of the entire water industry. Digitalisation can deliver huge efficiencies in water management: smart meters can provide valuable data to manage supply and demand.  In addition, there is a huge interest in harnessing renewable energy to power desalination and water treatment plants. Water authorities are also looking to increase the amount of water that is recycled for use in irrigation. Finally, there is a greater willingness on the part of governments to involve private sector companies in water management.

Water industry challenges and digital solutions to address them

The water sector is facing many challenges: aging infrastructure, which includes pipelines, tunnels, dams, pumping, storage and treatment facilities, are in constant need of renovation and repairing, requiring significant opex and capex plans. Available resources, that are also very much linked to and influenced by political cycles, are frequently not sufficient. Another challenge concerns the choice of the best technologies amongst the many available.  Furthermore, labour force has to be trained and ready to take full advantage of innovations.

There are also many sensor and communication challenges facing water utilities today and digital solutions are very useful for this purpose: “They increase accessibility, offer a comprehensive approach to data management and help manufacturers in offering tailor made solutions, rather than stand-alone products.” – says Matteo Viccardi, ISOIL’s Export Manager – “As an example, sensors installed in the network combined with software solutions makes remote control over the water network, leak detection and predictive maintenance much easier than it used to be”.

The key to accelerate the adoption of digital innovation is making it usable and accessible: this is exactly what ISOIL has done by launching on the market the first battery power converter with integrated alkaline batteries. “The company focus daily on designing, manufacturing and supplying high quality certified instrumentation with the goal of making its meters more accurate, accessible and digitally advanced” – continues Matteo Viccardi – “ISOIL’s main role in the water industry value chain is to make sure water utilities can count reliable and accurate data to take informed decisions and manage their networks“.

 

 

The water sector needs motivated young professionals

Water is one of seventeen global priorities agreed by world leaders, captured within the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): the SDG 6 demands that we halve the amount of untreated wastewater and provide universal access to adequate sanitation by 2030.

To address the high standards and targets set under this goal, the sector needs to attract and support the development of new talents. It needs those people who will bring research to practice, pilot and catalyse new thinking, and implement best practices.

According to recent national human resource assessments, water sector human resources are in short supply. Beyond shortages, the sector loses professionals every day to more competitive sectors. We can counter this trend by driving existing professionals from other sectors, but also students and young professionals to enter the water sector.

As an industry young professional, Matteo Viccardi, ISOIL‘s Export Manager, gives an advice for other smart water young professionals interested in pursuing this field: “Having joined the water industry only a couple of years ago, I can definitely say that the possibility of contributing to the global challenge of water management is both exciting and rewarding. The industry definitely needs motivated young professionals with different skills and backgrounds to integrate new technology and break down challenges in to smaller localised concepts and solutions. The water industry can hardly compete with some other industries in terms of salaries and compensations packages, but it can surely offer the great chance to work on one of the most important, complex and underestimated issues of our times, with objective of leaving a better world to future generations”.

INTCATCH is a large Horizon2020 Innovation Action co-founded by the European Union which will instigate a paradigm shift in the monitoring and management of surface water quality that is fit for global waters in the period 2020-2050. The project aims to bring together, validate and exploit into a single efficient and replicable business model, a range of innovative monitoring tools for river and lake water quality:

-Autonomous and radio controlled boats equipped with innovative sensors

-Next generation DNA test kits

-Innovative and sustainable treatment systems for combined sewer overflows (CSOs)

-Cloud based geo referenced data management solutions to make data visible to the whole community

-Decision Support System (DSS) to optimize water quality monitoring strategies.

INTCATCH innovations will be first demonstrated in Lake Garda catchment,  a very sensitive and strategic European water body, then replicated in other European sites.

INTCATCH aims at engaging stakeholders, local communities and tourists to validate a novel model where the citizen scientists are central in the sustainable catchment management.

Nord Stream 2 is a 1,200km-long offshore natural gas pipeline being constructed to connect Europe to the world’s largest reserves in Northern Russia. It is an expansion of the existing Nord Stream pipeline and is expected to supply energy to approximately 26 million households a year, with a capacity of 55 billion cubic metres (bcm). The pipeline will be able to cover one-third of the new gas imports required in the next two decades. The construction of the twin lines running offshore on the bed of the Baltic Sea is expected to be completed by end of 2019.

Among the EU Member States, Croatia has the largest supply of drinking water, but up to 80 percent of the freshwater is lost due mainly to old pipes.  The reason for the water loss lies on the fact that “the vast majority of the water pipes throughout the fresh water system are older than 50 years old meaning a huge problem with leakages”, according to an article released by the Dubrovnik Times. A possible solution for improving the system could be  Withdrawing money from the available European Union funds. Croatia has around 200 utility companies, and in order to increase the efficiency of the system, another the solution is seen in their unification.
