© 2019, Springer Nature Switzerland AG. Energy costs can be a major component of operational costs for water utilities. Operational efficiencies including optimising energy costs while maintaining continuity of supply is one area to reduce overall operational costs. To address the challenge, we have proposed an effective optimisation model to minimise the energy cost for water distribution networks. A simulation of the model over a water distribution network in Sydney demonstrated that 15% saving in energy cost could be achieved using this approach, as compared with the existing rule-based method.
