Investment planning

We turn lofty visions into actionable plans by identifying the required investments and by phasing them over time. AquaVest delivers average CAPEX savings of 15-20%.

Techno-economic optimization

AquaVest explores different ways to solve a well-defined problem as cost-effectively as possible. When it comes to water circularity, the question is often how to best match supply and demand considering ecological constraints (for example a restriction on groundwater extraction).
AquaVest knows the various water sources, knows all the dependencies between the players in the water chain, and knows the various investment options; based on that it examines all combinations and permutations of measures over time (2020 – 2040) to identify the most appropriate strategy for improved regional water resource management.

Water transition planning

AquaVest identifies the required investments to meet the future demands for water in a sustainable way. The algorithm explores different combinations of water treatment technology, water transport infrastructure, and water storage solutions. Storage can dampen seasonal changes in water costs, for example during drought periods when the availability of fresh water is significantly reduced.
The algorithm also identifies the optimal sizing and phasing of the investments over time. This leads to average CAPEX savings of 15-20%. That way, AquaVest creates credible, affordable, and competitive transition pathways to more circular water systems!

AquaVest guides investments in water infrastructure

It is estimated that a dazzling USD 7,500 billion dollars are needed between now and 2030 to build the water infrastructure required to reach SDG6 alone. Solid and resilient water infrastructure investment strategies are needed to reliably supply clean and affortable water and realize socio-economic growth in developing countries. AquaVest can identify the required investments that deliver the highest value at the lowest cost. The robustness of the investment proposition e.g. towards changing regulations can also be evaluated. The algorithm subsequently optimizes the phasing of the required investments over time to meet the required financial KPI’s.

The market for water infrastructure investments is growing. Below are shown the estimated global water infrastructure market sizes per sector (2017).
