Reduction of water consumption

Milton Keynes, United Kingdom


Water scarcity is constraining new developments taking place in the City of Milton Keynes. Action needs to be taken to reduce overall consumption to allow further development. The main goal for Milton Keynes  is to promote water conservation behaviour and achieve quantifiable water savings using social awareness incentives. Milton Keynes is a leading UK City in terms of data and data provision; the MK Smart Initiative is an example of this and water related data from MK Smart will be shared with the POWER DSP.

The POWER DSP model will address this by sharing and exchanging knowledge, allowing citizens to monitor water usage online, enhancing social gamification mechanisms and increasing individual and collective awareness. By connecting city inhabitants through a network, they will be able to see good and bad practices of others and exchange advice on how to improve consumption.

Application scenario’s key elements:

▪ Visual exploration of water consumption information.

▪ Earning rewards by information collection for water saving.

▪ Saving water with neighbours (competing neighbourhoods).

▪ Encourage drought resistant municipal planting (leading by example).

Follower cities in Turkey, Italy, Spain and Portugal.

DSP will become public by August 2017. During Beta Phase the access is allowed only to Power project partners.
