Interdependency between water and energy calls for better control and automation
Water and energy are inextricably linked and equally important to preserve for future generations. As population growth continues to skyrocket and water scarcity increases, the world is faced with a two-sided dilemma: producing more energy with less water and distributing clean water to more people using less energy.
A high level of control and automation is inherently important in water and wastewater operations, which is why guaranteed end-to-end power availability is critical throughout all stages of water treatment and distribution. When combined with UPS protection and intelligent power monitoring systems, secure power and cooling solutions can help water plants to:
- Save up to 30% in energy costs
- Maintain the flow of clean, safe drinking water for communities
- Protect power-critical applications such as ultraviolet disinfection, valve pulsing in the membrane system, and operation of controllers on remote panels
Whether designing a customized or turnkey system, Schneider Electric offers solutions that optimize power and cooling for water plants
