INDIANAPOLIS, IN, Jan. 7, 2013 -- Global Water Technologies (OTC Pink: GWTR) and GreenSuite have announced a partnership to promote efficiency through a pilot smart water grid project. The two Indianapolis companies are working to increase awareness and change behavior in ways that encourage more efficient use of water at the local level.
GreenSuite uses a web-based consumer portal that provides information to utility companies and their customers on usage analytics, methods to improve efficiency and ways to reward such behavior.
Global Water Technologies is working to create a pilot "smart water grid" that utilizes information technology to better manage the distribution of drinking water through a comprehensive "people + pipes + policy" approach that can be a model for sustainable water infrastructure.
"We believe GreenSuite has an innovative approach that engages and educates people about their water usage and also empowers improved policies for water efficiency," said Erik Hromadka, CEO of Global Water Technologies. "We look forward to demonstrating how such activity can be used by communities for more effective management of their water assets."
"Water efficiency is increasingly important to sustainability and we will help Global Water Technologies demonstrate the advantages of being able to monitor, measure, report and reward better water usage," said Cory Clark, CEO of GreenSuite.
The partnership with GreenSuite complements recent efforts by Global Water Technologies to demonstrate how community leaders can leverage advances in big data analytics, ranging from multi-parameter sensors that detect growing leaks in underground water pipes to predictive software and demand-driven distribution.
