本計畫在國內以往研究成果之基礎上，引進國外歐美日等先進國家之各型式高準確度水量計量與裝置技術及管理模式，並進行智慧型水量計可行性分析及召開推廣說明會。另一方面，亦進行現地測試及用戶滿意度調查。祈藉由評估水量計設備功能提升後，於公共給水效率及管理之效益，研擬策略方案作為國內未來提升水量計設備功能之可行措施參考依據，以有效控制供水系統之漏水率問題。;In Taiwan, due to unfavorable geological formation and other constraints, the financial and environmental costs of developing new large-scale water storage reservoirs have become prohibitive. Therefore, water resources management will need to rely on demand management and the reduction of water leakage in order to meet future water needs.
At the taps or end points of the water distribution, accurate metering of and instant reporting of water use would enable water utilities to adjust water delivery in accordance with short-term fluctuations in demand. Such would prevent excessive water pressure in the distribution networks and thus reduce water leakage. At the same time, when water users can monitor their water usage and accruement in water usage fees in real time, there are greater incentives for them to reduce water wastage and increase water use efficiency. In addition, real-time monitoring of water flow at different points of the distribution networks would allow water utilities to quickly find sites of water leakage and focus maintenance activities there, and thus increase the cost-effectiveness of leakage control. For the above reasons, countries such as the Israel, the United States, and the Democratic Republic of China have all begun to promote smart water metering technology.
This main objective of this project is to introduce and promote appropriate smart water metering technologies in Taiwan. The project is to first research the related projects and technologies that have been developed in Europe, United States, and Japan for potential applications in Taiwan, and then organize an exhibition where the manufactures are invited to show-case their smart water metering products to the public utilities and researchers in Taiwan. Following the exhibition, the feasibility of introducing a particular product would be assessed through field testing at various locations, and thereafter a survey of the users’ satisfaction with the particular product would be conducted. A promotional strategy for new smart metering technologies would then be drawn based on the field testing results, the users’ satisfaction survey, as well as on a extensive literature review of related studies that in the past have been completed in Taiwan.
