Our water monitoring system showed that there was continous water flow within a school, costing over £20,000 per year. Demeter drew up an updated water network plan, located and repaired an underground leak and rectified excessive water usage at a number of toilets. As a result, the school was able to reduce water costs by £20,000 a year.
Secondary school achieves savings of £20,000 per year in water bills.
Our water monitoring system showed that less than half of water supplied to this industrial site actually reached the point of use. Demeter carried out site investigations using leak detection equipment and installed valves to improve control over water networks. We repaired underground leaks at the weekend when there was minimal activity on site. As a result, the minimum water flow was reduced by 90% to 3,000 litres per hour and achieved annual savings of £80,000.
Water flow at a heavy industrial site reduced by 90%, achieving annual savings of £80,000.
After installing remote water loggers at key sites across the business, it was found that more than 90% of homes had excessive water use and leakage. The annual loss was estimated to be £4000 per site. Demeter provided advice and support across each site to resolve the issues. Causes of excessive water use were identified and leakage repair work was arranged. To date, annual savings of £65,000 have been achieved across all the sites from an investment of around £10,000 - £15,000.
Annual savings of £65,000 achieved across care home group.
A four star hotel saved £18,000 annually on their water bill with a project cost of less than £5,000.
Demeter has helped Police Forces by:
Identifying and quantifying water consumption and losses.
Providing advice and carrying out surveys to find cause of excessive water use.
Helping to reduce water costs by 50% with a payback of less than one year.
Police forces able to reduce water consumption by 50% with Demeter.
A report was compiled upon the completion of the auditing work, consisting of:
A detailed database of all points of water use.
Identification of opportunities to reduce water use at each store.
Recommendations along with cost-benefit analysis and payback period.
Demeter carries out water audit at 100 retail stores of the Co-operative.
Discover three different case studies:
St. Bedes RC Junior School in Washington had faced high water bills for more than two years but didn't know what to do.
Ryhope Infant and Junior School in Sunderland were concerned at their high water bills and contacted Demeter to investigate.
Stockton School saves thousands through Utilities Manager identifying a burst costing £500 a day.
Demeter introduced Utilities Manager to schools helping them save costs on water bills.
Water use in a care home was reduced by 60% saving them £10,000 a year
Demeter ensure sustainability in savings using a three phase approach i.e.;
Implement Utilities Manager to identify and quantify the losses.
Investigate and repair a number of identified issues.
Sustaining the saving by daily checking customer's water use.
Demeter provides water-monitoring services at a number of Universities across the country. The type of buildings we cover range from academic buildings to student accommodation and sport facilities. Read more on the two case studies to learn how savings were achieved.
Demeter help saved £55,000 a year on two University's sites.
Demeter monitors water consumption at hospitals and health sites.
Demeter monitors and manages water consumption at hospital and health sites across the UK. We have combined three hospital case studies at South Yorkshire, North East and Sunderland. Read more on the case studies to learn if we can help you save money on water bills at your hospital.
Our Utilities Manager system showed that the flow rate of water has never fallen below 1,400 litres per hour, which was equivalent to £22,000 per annum. We performed an investigation to determine the part of water network that has water losses. As a result, a leak was found on pipework at the back of the hotel. Consequently, the leak was repaired and the flow was reduced by over 1000 litres per hour. This has saved the hotel £18,000 per year.
