• Fostering greater resource efficiency in water networks

REDAWN aims to foster the adoption of hydropower energy recovery technology in built water networks in the Atlantic Area (AA) 

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 associated cost. 

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.

This is a three-year project enabled by financial assistance from ERDF funds of the Interreg Atlantic Area programme. The project will complete in Summer 2021.  Click on the film to watch the short project summary, meet the team and to find out more.
