“Water collection, treatment and supply”
Water collection, treatment and supply with high energy efficiency of the system.
Climate Change Mitigation
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:
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.
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.
