Population growth and economic development are main causes for increases in the demand for freshwater throughout the world. The likely impacts of climate change and increased urbanisation will result in the increase of the share of global water use to satisfy urban demand and will make water security for urban population even more difficult and costly to achieve. iWIDGET is an EU FP7 funded project (2012-2015), aiming to advance knowledge and understanding about smart metering technologies in order to develop novel, robust, practical and cost-effective methodologies and tools to manage urban water demand in households across Europe. The main scientific challenges for iWIDGET are the management and extraction of useful information from vast amounts of high-resolution consumption data, the development of customised intervention and awareness campaigns to influence behavioural change, and the integration of iWIDGET concepts into a set of decision-support tools ('widgets') for water utilities and consumers, applicable in differing local conditions, in three case studies in the UK, Portugal and Greece.

WaterMet2: a tool for integrated analysis of sustainability-based performance of urban water systems Behzadian, Kourosh; Kapelan, Zoran; Govindarajan, Venkatesh; et al. (Copernicus Publications for Delft University of Technology (TU Delft), 2014)This paper presents the "WaterMet2" model for long-term assessment of urban water system (UWS) performance which will be used for strategic planning of the integrated UWS. WaterMet2 quantifies the principal water-related ...
An analysis of the interface between evolutionary algorithm operators and problem features for water resources problems. A case study in water distribution network design McClymont, Kent; Keedwell, Edward; Savic, Dragan (Elsevier, 7 February 2015)Evolutionary Algorithms (EAs) have been widely employed to solve water resources problems for nearly two decades with much success. However, recent research in hyperheuristics has raised the possibility of developing ...
Adaptive water demand forecasting for near real-time management of smart water distribution systems Romano, Michele; Kapelan, Zoran (Elsevier, 1 October 2014)This paper presents a novel methodology to perform adaptive Water Demand Forecasting (WDF) for up to 24h ahead with the aim to support near real-time operational management of smart Water Distribution Systems (WDSs).
