Special Issue "Water Networks Management: New Perspectives"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 August 2018)
Prof. Dr. Vasilis Kanakoudis
Water scarcity and climate change are considered the main causes of water related problems around the globe. These problems get even worse due to the anthropogenic stresses put on water systems struggling to meet rapidly growing water demands. It is estimated that 20–40% of Europe’s available water is being wasted from leakages in the supply systems. This results in the inefficient use of water and energy resources, as well as negative economic, technical, social, and environmental impacts. Efficient and sustainable management of water distribution systems requires advanced tools and strategies for the analysis, monitoring, planning and operation of water distribution networks (WDNs). In such a context, the integration of ICT innovations in the water sector offers new opportunities for WDN management in urban areas, while exploiting the smart water networks paradigm. In this context, this Special Issue aims at providing insights on new perspectives on drinking water network management. Specific topics to be included are: Drinking Water Supply; Water Demand Forecast and Management; Simulation and Optimization Techniques of Water Pipe Networks; Water Pricing; and Water and Energy.
