Ranking Water Information Technology Companies on the Lux Innovation Grid

October 29, 2009 | State of the Market Report

Utilities, industries, consumers, and governments need to manage water more efficiently, and some of the most basic solutions may come from simply getting better information about water usage that allows these stakeholders to minimize unaccounted-for water, reduce water consumption, minimize water pollution, and reduce energy consumption. While there are physical solutions or lower-tech options available to help solve the hydrocosm’s water management woes, the scale of water needs and the lack of funds for a complete overhaul of the physical infrastructure also call for the deployment of emerging information technology solutions to address these areas. We assessed markets and companies in five segments: water mapping, water infrastructure, water quality monitoring, smart meters, and smart irrigation.
