Whitepaper – Reducing water loss in drinking water distribution

How can water utilities improve their efficiency and meet future demands for drinking water? These issues are explored in a new white paper.

In collaboration with Niras, Envidan has published a whitepaper for State of Green on the topic Non Revenue Water, Reducing Urban Water Losses. This is the 3rd edition of the white paper and it has been recognized worldwide since 2013 as a guide to address serious problems in the water sector involving the loss of valuable drinking water. It has also been a showcase for Danish knowledge and technology within the field.

Read the following articles:

  • A successful approach to reducing Non-Revenue Water: From holistic planning to successful implementation.
  • Overcoming barriers and reaping the benefits: Overview of the most common barriers to Non-Revene Water reduction and how to achieve long-term results.
  • Framework conditions which support Non-Revenue Water reduction: Creating public awareness of the value of water and setting political targets.

This whitepaper is written by Jens Baadsgaard Pedersen (Envidan) and Klavs Høgh (Niras). State of Green has edited and a number of Danish companies and utilities have contributed with interesting and relevant cases.

The white paper has been translated into Chinese and will be published on the occasion of a seminar on the topic at Asia’s largest environmental exhibition, IE Expo in Shanghai on April 20th, 2021. The seminar runs both in person with 50-70 participants and online. Jens Baadsgaard Pedersen from Envidan and Kristiane Østergaard Jensen from HOFOR will participate as speakers and panelists (online).
