REDAWN: Reducing Energy Dependency in Atlantic area Water Networks

The WATEF network is part of a research consortium of European partners working on the REDAWN project.

The water industry is the 4th most energy intensive sector in the Atlantic area, responsible for significant contributions to climate change and reductions in competitiveness due to the associated costs.

REDAWN brings together 15 partners from 5 with the aim to improve the energy efficiency of water networks through the installation of innovative micro-hydropower technology. This technology will recover wasted energy in existing pipe networks across irrigation, public water supply, process industry, and waste-water network settings.

This project is co-financed  by  the  European  Regional  Development  Fund  through the Interreg Atlantic Area Programme.

REDAWN Project Launch event 2 March 2018

On 2 March 2018 the REDAWN project partners organised a launch event hosted by SMPGA at their offices in Saint-Per sur Mer, Normandy.   This launch event was designed as a whole day of presentations and discussion, aimed at bringing stakeholders together from across the water industry in the Atlantic Area in order to discuss the innovative technology behind the project, and what opportunities and challenges the project faces.

Speakers included senior representatives of local and regional government, project partners and representatives from the French and Portuguese water industry.  Around 100 people attended in person, and around 150 more people watched the event as it was livestreamed in English and French on the day.  The event was covered by the Ouest-France newspaper.
