Project REDAWN - Reducing Energy Dependency in Atlantic area Water Networks.
The water industry is the fourth most energy intensive sector in the Atlantic area, responsible for significant contributions to climate change and reductions in competitiveness due to associated costs.
REDAWN aims to improve the energy efficiency of water networks through the installation of innovative micro-hydropower (MHP) technology. This technology will recover wasted energy in existing pipe networks across irrigation, public water supply, process industry, and waste-water network settings.
The REDAWN project brings together 15 partners from 5 countries around the Atlantic coast working towards greater efficiency in water networks.
Three pilot sites in Spain, Portugal and France will be demonstrating the new MHP technology as we develop an adequate institutional, social and technological environment to foster greater resource efficiency in water networks.
This 3 million EUR project is co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund through the Interreg Atlantic Area Programme. The project will complete in Spring 2020.
