“Water collection, treatment and supply” Water collection, treatment and supply with high energy efficiency of the system.
Metric and threshold:
The front-to-end water collection, treatment and supply system is eligible provided that: • it’s performance in terms of energy consumption per cubic meter of final water supply is high or substantially improved. Eligibility is demonstrated by adherence to one of two optional thresholds: Option 1: The front-to-end water supply system has a high degree of energy efficiency characterized by: • an average energy consumption of the system (including abstraction, treatment and distribution) of 0.5 kwh per cubic meter billed/unbilled authorized water supply or less. Option 2: The energy efficiency of the front-to-end water supply system is increased substantially: • by decreasing the average energy consumption of the system by at least 20% (including abstraction, treatment and distribution; measured in kwh per cubic meter billed/unbilled authorized water supply); or • by closing the gap between the actual leakage of the water supply network and a given target value of low leakage by at least 20%. The unit of measurement is the Infrastructure Leakage Index (ILI) , the target value of low leakage is an ILI of 1.5.
