CP030  National Microcomponent Monitor, Identiflow Demand Management
This project involved intensive monitoring of the demand to 270 households in 13 Water Utilities, for periods of two to four weeks. The Identiflow approach was used to calculate microcomponents of demand for these flows. A UK national database was compiled and key results including frequency of use and volume per use for domestic devices were derived. The feasibility of monitoring microcomponent use at a National, Regional or Company level without customer intrusion was demonstrated.

The understanding of microcomponent use enables more reliable demand forecasting for efficient strategic planning and abstraction license approval. The Identiflow approach can also be used to quantify uncertainties of demand management measures and to provide a detailed understanding of peak demands. The project participants are now considering the benefits of individual, regional or national monitors, based on a demonstrated consistent approach.
