“The Paulson Institute, in cooperation with the China Center for International Economic Exchanges (CCIEE), today awarded the 2015 Prize for Cities of the Future to the Anheng Group’s Sustainable City Water Supply Network Leakage Control Solution. Paulson Institute Chairman Henry M. Paulson, Jr., CCIEE Chairman Zeng Peiyan, and Prize Jury Committee Chairman Richard M. Daley presented the award to Beijing Vice Mayor Lin Keqing at a ceremony held at the Diaoyutai State Guesthouse in Beijing.
The Anheng project utilizes cloud and big data technology to manage water leakage control in urban pipeline infrastructure and provide safer water to China’s urban residents. It steeply reduces the amount of time required to detect leakage points, thus reducing water waste and lowering the risk of pipeline explosions. In China, where the annual water deficit is over 50 billion cubic meters and the average urban water supply leakage rate is 15%, water waste is a growing social and economic concern.”
