Frost & Sullivan: Massive Energy Savings with Smart Water Grids

In a web conference Environmental analyst Seth Cutler will examine the opportunities for a market that is forecast to reach $20 billion by 2020

Water utilities are poised to make unprecedented savings from the deployment of smart water grids, which will serve to maximize operational and management performance. According to Frost & Sullivan, smart water grids can deliver 30% reductions in energy expenditures which is very large considering many water utilities easily spend 60% of their annual budgets on energy.


Savings and operational efficiencies are the largest drivers of the smart water grid market. The other top drivers are technological capability; social awareness; and environmental pressures.

Frost & Sullivan Environment Research Analyst Seth Cutler will be discussing the opportunities within the smart water grid market in a webcast that will take place on 2nd November 2011, at 3 pm GMT.

Water utilities are undergoing a global transformation as smart water grid ICT solutions are used to trim long-term spending and reduce carbon footprints. Deteriorating infrastructure, rising energy prices, economic uncertainty and water supply pressures enhance the market's attractiveness and carve out an opportunity worth over $20 billion annually by 2020 for solutions providers. This reality is drawing the focus of leaders and innovators from multiple industries as they seek to capitalize on future growth," observes Research Analyst Seth Cutler.

The webinar - which is open to everyone interested in this sector – will examine this rapidly growing market with a global analysis and an assessment of future opportunities and emerging trends. It can benefit several stakeholders in the value chain of the water sector.

Parker KleenVent provides closed-loop solution for wind turbine cooling systems

Many 1.5 MW wind turbines use traditional open-loop water/glycol cooling systems. Regular water evaporation in the reservoir elevates the mixture's viscosity, prohibiting cooling of the IGBT and associated critical controls, causing the wind turbine to overheat unless serviced, which in turn means turbine downtime and high maintenance costs. Parker's KleenVent Coolant Evaporation Inhibitor (KV-CEI) is a simple add-on to the legacy cooling system, that eliminates water evaporation in the coolant solution and stops the ingress of airborne contaminants, by enclosing the cooling loop. The KVCEI also removes the need for continuous coolant monitoring during the warm season. Traditional maintenance calls to replenish or rebalance the fluids, take the wind turbine and transformer offline, resulting in significant downtime and revenue loss. Parker's cooling system solution optimizes wind turbine uptime and revenue, reduces maintenance costs and increases overall efficiencies.
