The long term potential for deep reductions in household water demand (2018)

With a fifty-year time horizon, we can afford to look beyond the current constraints, to think about the deep reductions that consumers could make, if we all work together. As well as being an important resource for our future price reviews – and to an extent the one that’s gearing up now, we hope that this study provokes discussion in the sector. This report for Ofwat produced by Artesia consulting looks at long term potential for reducing household demand for water.

Guidance on evaluation and selection of sustainable water demand management technologies (2013)

This report presents guidance for the evaluation and selection of Water Demand Management (WDM) type technologies for the effective and efficient reduction of water consumption for different water stakeholders - householders, Water Service Providers (WSPs) and policy makers - in a technically sound, yet economically, environmentally and socially acceptable way for all stakeholders involved. The technical guidance is based on work carried out as part of the EU-funded FP7 TRUST (TRansitions to the Urban Water Services of Tomorrow) research project. The WDM interventions considered in the report have been evaluated largely based on the their overall water saving potential, cost- effectiveness, water-related energy use as well as impact on the reliability of supply/demand balance of Water Distribution Systems (WDSs).
