WaterCity, a social network to manage domestic water consumption

02/11/15

Awareness is a key factor to promote water resources saving. This is the aim of WaterCity, a new social network that helps consumers to reduce water consumption. So far, it is only available in Spain.

WaterCity users can manage from their own profile the data about consumption of water contained in bills and set targets for monthly savings. In addition, the platform allows the user to compare his/her domestic consumption with other users with similar profiles according to different factors: number of people living in the same home, number of appliances available and the price of water. In this way, a motivational relation between users is established. This is a key fact to encourage savings.

The platform has been developed within the framework of the research project WatERP. Its main goal is to create an open management platform to integrate the management of offer and demand within the complete cycle of supplying and distribution of water.

Different media briefings have been published about the launch of this social networkEurecat, ABC, La Voz Digital, iAgua, Generalitat de Catalunya.
