New REDAWN Webinar 3: Energy recovery potential, economic, social and environmental impacts

Event Date: 
Thursday 12 November 2020

Our third Autumn webinar event presented the achievements regarding energy recovery in the EU Atlantic Area water sector and aimed to demonstrate the substantial potential for micro-hydropower (MHP) to generate clean energy and contribute to improving the sustainability of the EU’s water sector. Using a series of case studies in water distribution and irrigation networks, the potential economic, social and environmental impacts and challenges to implementing this in the EU will be explored. 

The session was led by Dr. Helena M. Ramos, (University of Lisbon, Instituto Superior Técnico) 

Featuring: 

  • MHP energy recovery potential in water distribution networks in the EU Atlantic Area. Aida Mérida Garcia, (Córdoba, Spain) 

  • Economic and environmental benefits of the micro hydraulic plants in water networks. Indalecio González Fernández, (University of Oviedo, Spain)

REDAWN Webinar 1: Saving energy in the water networks (prerecorded)

Event Date: 
Thursday 29 October 2020

Our first of the Autumn webinar was a rerun of the recorded webinar originally presented on 22 July 2020 which included a new live Q&A session.  The event focused on the state of the art in water networks and highlights the energy saving potential in such systems. We also covered the concepts and applications of the latest technology in Pump-as-Turbines (PATs) and briefly present a database tool for selecting PATs.

The session was led by Dr Kemi Adeyeye (WATEF network, University of Bath):

Featuring:

  • Opportunities for energy recovery with the latest PAT technology (Prof Armando Carravetta, UNINA)
  • Energy recovery potential in on-demand irrigation networks (Miguel Crespo Chacon, Trinity College Dublin)

Partner meeting in Cordoba, Spain

Event Date: 
Wednesday 9 October 2019 to Friday 11 October 2019

Our October partner meeting took us to Cordoba, to visit the demonstration pilot site based on the Almaco del Guadalquivir farm which produces walnuts and pecans, near the village of Calonge.  We enjoyed hearing about early results from our pilot site here, as well as updates from our other two demonstration sites in Portugal and France.

Portugal National Day of Water 2019 - Conference on renewable energy

Event Date: 
Monday 7 October 2019

To celebrate the National Day of Water in Portugal, APREN and IST-Lisboa held a conference featuring several speakers on the theme of renewable energy and water.  This featured REDAWN project contributor Professor Helena Ramos of IST-Lisboa, who delivered a presentation on "Water-based micro-hydro and pumped storage hybrid solutions".

The celebration of this date aimed to promote reflection on the importance of our water resources, as well as their management at national level, as part of a climate change scenario and an energy transition that is intended to be effective and consequent.
