Global Climate Week in Funchal included a conference on “Water Loss Reduction in Distributor Systems in a Climate Change context”, featuring a lecture by Rui Silva Santos. 

The REDAWN project is eligible for the 2019 Enertic Awards, which recognizes the best innovations and technologies “for energy efficiency in the digital age”

Our project has been put forward under the categories "Smart Sustainability", "International Projects" and "H2020-2030".

REDAWN partners Trinity College Dublin and the WATEF Network were manning a stand at this September's Future Resource Expo, at the NEC in Birmingham.

The WATEF network lead, Dr Kemi Adeyeye, also gave a talk on "How we can reclaim lost energy in water networks", showcasing the latest findings from the REDAWN project.



Watch our latest film about our micro-hydro technology as it was featured in our recent Energy Day.

Taking place in May 2019, our Energy Day was an open day in which we promoted the transition to clean energy by presenting our demonstration site that tests our REDAWN technology in the context of irrigation.

This pilot plant replaces a diesel generator on a farm in Andalucia with a sustainable solution which will save the farm fuel costs and reduce harmful emissions.

Our latest partner meeting was at Instituto Superior Técnico in Lisbon, where we heard about progress on the project from all of the partners, including the latest on our three pilot sites in France, Spain and Portugal, before viewing the technical labs where some of the testing for our micro-hydro technology is taking place.

We will be showing off our latest work at Future Resource Expo. Dr Kemi Adeyeye, the project lead for the WATEF network, will be speaking about REDAWN at the show on Wednesday 11 September at 12:30 at Energy & Water Efficiency Theatre 14. 
Come and meet us at stand T162 and catch up on the latest news from the project.

Follow the links to media coverage about our Energy Day event, celebrating the launch of our pilot techology in irrigation networks.

In one week's time on May 29, we will be holding an "Energy Day": a day where we will be promoting the transition to clean energy.

Two new brochures have been published featuring the successes of the EU Interreg Atlantic Area Programme, which supports the REDAWN project. 

During the month of April, the installation work and start up tests for our irrigation pilot plant has been completed.  This pilot will be testing the generation of micro-hydro energy at the Cortijo Calonge farm in Palma del Río (Spain).

The winning company, Tecnoturbines, has been finalizing the installation of the entire monitoring system so that the technology is available and ready to start generating clean and sustainable energy before the imminent irrigation season begins.
