British Water puts focus on data and analytics
Aug 17, 2016
Data and Analytics Focus Group will outline best practice for the industry / Innovation and Extractive Industries groups set up / British Water now has six technical focus groups
British Water recently set up focus groups specialising in extractive industries and innovation too, bringing the total number of expert technical platforms to six.
Technical Director Marta Perez said: “Over the last 12 months British Water has doubled the number of technical forums, which are free and open to members. Becoming a part of these forums allows members from all aspects of the water industry to share knowledge, make new connections and to have a say in common standards and future regulation.”
At its first meeting, members of Data & Analytics Focus Group vowed to work towards a code of practice to advise UK utilities and their supply chain. The data and analytics experts also propose to compile a glossary of technical terms to streamline the way language is used across the industry.
The Innovation Focus Group had its first meeting in September 2015. Its aim is to share knowledge about the process by which new products can be developed and brought to a commercialisation stage, to improve information about grant funding and to build new links with academia.
British Water set up the Extractive Industries Focus Group in June last year. Its objective is to explore the opportunities for the water industry’s supply chain presented by the development of hydraulic fracturing in the UK and to help regulators identify available technologies.
The three new focus groups are in addition to the existing British Water groups, which address issues relating to package treatment plants, network management and sustainable water management.
“The sort of detailed information provided by British Water focus groups can be tremendously useful when advising governments and regulatory bodies about new standards and legislation.”
Membership of British Water technical focus groups is free and open to all members. To find out more about becoming a member of British Water, please visit www.britishwater.co.uk.
