TWENTY 65: Tailored Water Solutions for Positive Impact

Lead Research Organisation: University of Sheffield
Department Name: Civil and Structural Engineering

Abstract

Water for all is the aim of this consortium. The UK water sector faces grand challenges over the coming decades: increasing population, ageing infrastructure, and the need to better protect the natural environment all under conditions of uncertain climate change. The application of traditional technology-based solutions alone is not the way forward. We propose the use of 'tailored solutions' to address these challenges by combining measures to suit specific circumstances and constraints to achieve flexible and adaptive water systems. The project will undertake research in 8 technical themes, each of which individually pose disruptive questions, demonstrate the potential for, and lead transformation. However, they will not be viewed in isolation. When considered in combination, taking a systems view, they can be combined as 'silver baskets' of broader tailored solutions able to work synergistically for existing and new infrastructure in order to achieve transformative impact. Tailoring water solutions does not mean lower quality water services for different sectors in society; rather, it means fair, bespoke solutions appropriate to variations in the natural environment, population distribution, and legacy infrastructure. In this way the project will address the needs of water for all.

Our consortium is built around a core based on the Pennine Water Group (PWG) which has been supported continuously by three EPSRC platform grants since 2001. The PWG's strength and international reputation is founded on a balance of fundamental and applied research via a multi-disciplinary approach focusing on urban water asset management. This consortium broadens the PWG to include new expertise to provide tailored water solutions for positive impact. At Sheffield, this will include new collaborations with experts in energy systems, robotics, automation, and management. Externally, the consortium includes internationally-leading experts from Exeter for household and community scale water efficiency, Imperial College for treatment and emerging contaminants, Manchester for social practices, Newcastle for climate change impacts, risk modelling and cities/infrastructure integration, and Reading for catchment processes. All members bring wide international collaborative networks that will link with the scientific and engineering research needed to deliver the silver baskets of tailored solutions.

To achieve the envisioned transformation requires time and a step change in the way in which the UK water sector identifies, develops and applies innovation. Stakeholders need to move out of traditional silos and collaborate to creatively co-produce knowledge and action. Academics, scientists and engineers must work across disciplines and stages in the knowledge production process to deliver the complex socio-technical solutions needed to meet the challenges facing the UK water sector. Collaboration is especially relevant in a sector that is not accustomed to working together and does not have a shared vision of how to meet its grand challenges. A unique feature of this consortium is the development of the Hub that will revolutionise the way innovation is delivered to the UK water sector. The Hub aims to provide transformative leadership and accelerate and support innovation through partnerships for the co-production of knowledge across the water sector. Underpinned by world class science and engineering research the Hub will facilitate the development and communication of a shared visionary roadmap for the UK water sector, stimulate and demonstrate new tailored approaches to address the grand challenges, create a process for selecting potentially transformative tailored socio-technical solutions in line with the roadmap and enable the accelerated generation of collaborative, responsible innovation across the UK water sector.

Planned Impact

Water is essential for life, fuels food production, sustains economic growth and governs the status of the Earth's ecosystems. In leading progression towards tailored water systems with positive impact by 2065, our research agenda will have widespread impact upon individuals, organisations and institutions that engage with water across the economic-environmental-social continuum. Our key deliverables leading to impact will be: (i) new partnerships; (ii) new knowledge, technologies and products needed along a transition timeline towards 2065; (iii) proof of the economic viability, novelty and stakeholder acceptability of solutions over the medium to long term; (iv) understanding of barriers for technology adoption and social change; (v) plan to overcome these barriers; (vi) business case based on cost-benefits analysis agreed with commercial partners and end users to influence market take up; (vii) community education.

Economic and industrial impact. A fragmented water sector, the absence of a central innovation hub enabling coordination and demonstration, and the difficulties of co-creating innovative projects across research and industry, limit the uptake of UK water research. This constrains the potential for innovation and knowledge development in the UK water sector, reducing the potential for efficiency and growth. Our research will positively impact water service providers (water companies and supply chain), through the co-development of tools, technologies and processes that provide competitive advantage to these organisations in the context of future water service provision. In addition, we envisage positive impacts on other infrastructure providers such as energy and waste through cross-sector collaboration and learning specifically for the water sector. In addition, by 2030 the UK share of the global water technology market has the potential to increase to 10% (£8.8 billion) or more, providing 71,000 jobs and involving 960 SMEs (UKWRIP, 2012), if the chalenge of embedding world-leading water research in practice can be addressed. By specifically addressing this challenge, our research will better position the water industry, and new SMEs, to exploit this market opportunity and promote the UK to leading water innovation internationally.

Impact upon policymakers and regulators. Our collaborative research process, alongside our specific research outcomes, will impact on organisations including the EC, Defra, EA, Ofwat and DWI, by providing new evidence, tools and processes through which policy and regulation can be designed to address future water challenges. Our research, coupled with our engagement activities, will also impact on citizens, supporting water service providers in their work to deliver an improved and more secure water service to citizens, alongside increasing the visibility and level of engagement among citizens with the opportunities and challenges in the field of water service provision. Environmental interest groups will be positively impacted through access to the rapidly evolving scientific evidence base related to tailored water systems, enabling these organisations to more effectively support their advocacy positions.

Impact upon future engineers. We will raise the profile of water engineering as an important and attractive sector of academia and the economy, given the challenge of securing future water service provision. We will specifically impact a large cohort of the next generation of skilled water engineers by developing their technical expertise, alongside furnishing them with the skills and experience needed to ensure the uptake of world-leading research in water practice. Through our programme of engagement, we will also impact upon individuals at earlier stages of becoming future engineers (e.g. primary and secondary school children) by raising the profile of water service provision as a grand challenge and the opportunities for future careers that address this challenge.

Description Vision and Leadership. The TWENTY65 interdisciplinary research consortium is leading a transformation for the provision of sustainable clean water for all through the development and demonstration of disruptive socio-technical solutions. A unique feature of TWENTY65, enabled through the Grand Challenge funding, is the Water Innovation Hub. The Hub is revolutionising the way innovation is thought about and enacted in the water sector, bringing together the disparate stakeholders to develop a shared vision and roadmap to stimulate, demonstrate and integrate new approaches to solve the UK and world's water challenges. This is leading and driving the sector beyond what is possible within the EPSRC resources alone. Key mechanisms we are using for this are our Thought Leadership Clubs and the initiation of an increasingly successful annual conference.

Research findings and integration. The eight technically themed areas of TWENTY65 are each delivering leading scientific and engineering research, and serve as examples of socio-technical components that could form various combinations of 'silver baskets' for transformative change. Example accomplishments to date include the establishment of two long term monitoring sites in the Exe and the Loddon catchments, leading to a further £1.25M via NERC. Data from these sites will underpin metrics for assessing the treatability of water from our changing catchments, providing the basis to consider treatment options at all points across the water cycle, not just at centralised treatment works. Progress within the demand based treatment theme has included the design of composite membranes with reduced fouling rates and lower driving pressure, essential for local treatment, potentially even under the sink. However, the uptake of such technology will rely on changing behaviours, practices and regulations. To that end, the mobilisation theme has developed a new conceptual tool which enables systematic analysis and assessment of the effectiveness of public engagement and with the sector.

An exciting theme of research that is gaining substantial interest is pervasive Robotic Autonomous Systems (RAS) for water pipe infrastructure. Our compelling simulation results evidence the potential for this technology and set key performance requirements. This research has underpinned the award of a ~£8M programme grant between Sheffield, Birmingham, Bristol and Leeds universities. The unprecedented information on condition and performance that RAS could deliver will transform how existing infrastructure is used, enabling concepts such as water infrastructure based storage and generation of renewable energy, the feasibility of which has been successfully demonstrated through simulation at community scale in our water-energy theme. The energy generation capability of water systems could be further enhanced by integrating urban water management and reuse at multiple scales. Our city as a water resource theme is challenging the traditional water management paradigm and an early achievement for this theme has been the development of "The State of UK SuDS Delivery" paper in collaboration with CIWEM.

We have also been undertaking leading research in the two cross cutting thematic areas of collaboration for innovation and foresight and integration. These are leading in co-creation at sectoral scale and providing a focal point for conceptualising and evaluating futures.

Overall alignment with and delivery against the objectives of TWENTY65 has been strong. We are undertaking internationally leading engineering and science research using a multi-institutional, cross-disciplinary consortium to develop 'silver baskets' of tailored solutions that have the potential to transform the UK (and the world's) water service provision (overarching objective 1). We have developed and delivered, via the Hub, a mechanism that engages the water sector widely to co-produce knowledge, jointly develop a roadmap, and enable multiple avenues of research, dissemination and innovation, thereby starting the journey towards tailored solutions for positive impact (overarching objective 2).
Exploitation Route We recognise that the application of any single universal technical innovation cannot solve the interconnecting and interacting pressures facing the water sector. Achieving flexible and adaptive systems means tailoring combinations of measures to suit specific circumstances. Thus, we are developing disruptive solutions that can work synergistically, including with existing infrastructure, to achieve positive impact. So while individual themes are making great progress and being taken forward through different further funding and partnering mechanism, perhaps the greatest but least tangible impacts are through the subtle influence across the sector, the proliferation of the ideals of co-creation, disruptive solutions and the need for transformative change and our influence on policy. Our stakeholders are moving out of traditional silos and collaborating to creatively co-produce knowledge and action. We are leading by example to work across disciplines and across different stages to fundamentally recognise and address the complex coupled socio-technical challenges, anticipating and delivering responsible innovation. Our impact is underpinned by our fundamental approach to innovation through the consortium Hub: to collaboratively develop, co-produce and exchange research and ideas with beneficiaries across the water sector. Our work is delivering impact to a wide range of beneficiaries including water service providers, related infrastructure providers (e.g. energy), policymakers, regulators, citizens, current and future water engineers, and environmental interest groups.

Description TWENTY65 has developed very closely to what was planned, delivering strongly on research and leading the sector in water innovation. TWENTY65 has enjoyed unanticipated success in reaching the water sector supply chain, now counting more than 50 industrial partners with significant interest from policymakers and regulators. A notable success is our series of annual conferences uniquely bringing together a diverse spectrum of people from across the UK water sector to meaningfully debate the long term challenges and opportunities for water. Keynote speakers at this have included Angela Smith MP and co-chair of the All Party Parlimentary Water Group, Rachel Fletcher, CEO Ofwat and Philip Graham, CEO National Infrastructure Commission. Some example of feedback include: "The conference was the most interdisciplinary that I have been to in this area, and I believe genuinely advanced conversations between fields." "Good conference - liked the mix of disciplines" "Refreshing to hear the water sector talk about people as well as technology" We have firmly placed ourselves within the international water research landscape and are particularly recognised for innovation and futures thinking, true to our Grand Challenge focus on the long-term and disruptive. Our follow-on funding demonstrates this recognition. For example, we have engaged closely with UKWIR on their 'Big Questions', including running prioritisation workshops to derive a co-created prioritised list of research needs that bridges water quality and health risks. Arup partnered with us to develop a 2050 vision of the water industry considering the widest range of impacts of digital disruptions. We are also becoming a single point of contact for the UK within the international research community, with significant international participation in our conference, a growing breadth and number of collaborations, international follow-on funding, workshops and numerous visits with, to and from other countries. A notable example is the strong links built with Future Water Institute at the University of Cape Town, which has recently provided valuable insight into coping with drought With innovation at the forefront of Ofwat's next regulatory cycle, they have invited TWENTY65 to deliver an 'innovation showcase' day. Building on our success and visibility, we are working with industry partners, UK Water Partnership, Innovate UK, OFWAT to try and develop a UK Water Accelerator to launch new innovations and ensure that the sector is innovation-ready, which could form the basis of continued funding for TWENTY65.
