Using Smart Devices And The IoT To Rethink How To Address Water Management And Sustainability
With over 50% of the world’s population living in cities, these cities see a high level of consumption, depleting our natural resources. One of the major resources under concern is water. With cities like Manila now facing stark water shortage due to infrastructure and other issues, we need to take a look at the way we manage this resource. Buildings use a large amount of water, leading to the concept of green building. These buildings ensure that resources like energy and water are used efficiently.
We need to also review the entire hardware and systems of buildings to create greater efficiency in all aspects.
For instance, replacing inefficient pumps could help significantly in increasing water and energy efficiency standards while being cost-effective.
Besides this, the citizens need to be educated on how they can contribute and save resources. Digitization could help a great deal here by informing the individuals or a household about their water usage. Smart homes having a digital water meter, or an energy consumption meter could help the owners save water, energy, and money. Encouraging public-private partnerships will ensure that the same is done on a larger scale.
