New 2022 Live in London and Online: Event Dates Announced
The World's Premier Water Leakage Summit Returns to London Live and Online For Its 12th Year In July 2022
Following the global shutdown of live events in 2020 and most of 2021, the Global Leakage Summit returns to London as a LIVE and ONLINE event in July 2022. Now in its 12th year, the 2022 Summit will, as always, focus on latest advances in technology and software for data analysis, featuring the most innovative and successful examples of delivering and maintaining reduced leakage levels across the world.
The Covid-19 pandemic has affected the global water industry on a massive scale - how will the industry recover from 'long Covid'?
- What has been the effect on the operational workforce and on the global supply chain?
- What effect will the backlog of leaks have on reaching or sustaining leakage targets?
The 2022 Summit Will Focus On 3 main themes:
- How the industry is dealing with post-Covid issues
- Collaboration between water companies, the supply chain and stakeholders
- Addressing zero leakage and zero carbon initiatives
Key Issues And Topics Include:
- Seizing Opportunities. We examine the effects of lockdown - as well as addressing threats we review the effect on customer consumption and commercial use. How has the global Covid pandemic affected leakage operations?
- Sharing Ideas And Experiences. Continuing collaboration between water company practitioners and the supply chain. Looking at the continuing synergy between water companies and multiple vendors
- Ofwat's Innovation Fund. Launched in Spring 2021, the 2.0 million GBP fund aims to improve the way companies work together by encouraging global partnerships within and outside the sector. We review progress with the fund, and bring to the 2022 Summit some examples of collaborative projects to date.
- Virtual Networks. Introducing platforms to share and understand best practice in addressing leakage. They provide a central platform for disseminating water company and supply chain project experience and results, avoiding repetition from multiple technology trials with the same objective.
- Enabling A Workforce Of The Future. We hear case studies from two UK water companies who are pioneering projects to enable staff to develop new skills and roles - to provide a happier, healthier and safer workforce. One company has expanded its 'shop window' project to encompass these aims - the other has developed a 'Gold Standard' leakage best practice policy to share with its workforce company wide.
- Achieving Zero Leakage. Are we getting closer to finding the 'Holy Grail' of leakage? Is it more about preventing leaks in the first place rather than finding every leak? The focus is turning towards prevention of leaks - novel pipe lining materials, advanced pressure transient monitoring early warning systems, and AI and Machine Learning to enhance data analysis. The Summit agenda will examine the latest thinking on technologies for preventing leaks.
- Net Zero Carbon By 2030? The UK water industry was the first to commit to this goal, with the CEOs of 3 major water companies sponsoring a public interest commitment (PIC) to achieve net zero carbon by 2030. Tripling the rate of leakage reduction by 2030, and reducing customer consumption by 20% by 2050 are major goals in the strategy to significantly reduce the carbon and energy used by the sector.
- Better Infrastructure For Leak Prevention. The design and installation of new water mains, avoiding excessive jointing is critical for avoiding future leaks. Installation - and managing the quality of installation - is one of the 'prevention' planks of 'PALM' (prevent, be aware, locate and mend). But what industry standards are already in place and what needs to be improved?
