Novelti is joining forces with INDRA and ACING to make water consumption safer and more efficient in public areas. To do this, we’ve been selected to provide Novelti analytics platform to selected public buildings in Madrid where we will be using the our capabilities to learn about the buildings’ overall consumption.

So how does it work? Smart meters at these sites provide us with a detailed real-time data of their water consumption. By disaggregating this data Novelti can help site admin and other relevant bodies understand when, how, and where their water is consumed: appliance usage, for example, or watering of green areas. Because our service also includes real-time machine learning, Novelti is able to learn the behavior of consumption data and set up alarms when it detects abnormal consumption.

As a result, we’ll generate valuable information about the public use of water that can be given to citizens, water utilities, industry, and public bodies. In the short term, these analytics will allow sites to understand their water consumption habits and prevent damages connected to leakages, open taps, and other kinds of safety hazards. In the long term though, sites could reduce their overall water demand by 15%.
