REDAWN: Reducing Energy Dependency in Atlantic Area Water Networks - Project final event

About this Event

Reducing Energy Dependency in Atlantic Area Water Networks (REDAWN)


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

We are very excited to invite you to the project’s final event

This final project event is targeted at stakeholders from the water, wastewater and irrigation industry, policy makers and regulators, supply chain, process and product manufacturers, customers, academia and other related groups. The event will give an overview of REDAWN’s objectives and activities as well the merits of MHP technologies to the Atlantic Area and beyond.

The objectives of the event are to engage stakeholders with a range of interactive activities, highlight available sources of information on the innovative topic areas and to connect and inform delegates through networking opportunities, video, virtual tours and breakout sessions.
