REDAWN: Reducing Energy Dependency in Atlantic Area Water Networks

Map of Regions

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 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.

This is a three-year project enabled by financial assistance from ERDF funds of the Interreg Atlantic Area programme.  The project will complete in Spring 2020.

Reducción de la dependencia energética en redes de suministro de agua en las regiones atlánticas

La industria del agua es la cuarta mayor consumidora de energía en la region Atlántica, lo cual contribuye al cambio climático y reduce la competitividad del sector debido a los costes asociados. REDAWN se centra en mejorar la eficiencia energética en las redes de distribución de agua mediante una tecnología innovadora basada en el uso de microturbinas. Esta tecnología recuperará los excesos de energía en redes de tuberías para riego, suministro urbano, industria y reciclado de aguas

Réduire la dépendance énergétique des réseaux de distribution d’eau dans l’Espace Atlantique

L’industrie de l’eau est le 4ème secteur le plus énergivore dans l’Espace Atlantique, contribuant significativement au changement climatique et à la perte de compétitivité due aux coûts associés. REDAWN vise à améliorer l’efficacité énergétique des réseaux de distribution d’eau grâce à un microsystème hydroélectrique innovant. Cette technologie récupèrera l’énergie perdue dans les conduites de réseaux existants, pour l’irrigation, l’approvisionnement public, l’industrie privée et les eaux usées

Reduzir a Dependência Energética nas Redes de Água da Região Atlântica

A indústria da água é o 4º maior consumidor de energia da região Atlântica, responsável por contribuições significativas para as alterações climáticas e da redução da competitividade devido aos custos associados. REDAWN visa melhorar a eficiência energética das redes de água através da instalação micro-hídricas inovadoras. Esta tecnologia vai recuperar a energia que é desperdiçada na rega, no abastecimento público de água, nos processos industriais e nas rede de drenagem.
