REDAWN: Reducing Energy Dependency in Atlantic Area Water Networks

contact us

REDAWN aims to foster the adoption of hydropower energy recovery technology in built water networks in the Atlantic Area (AA).  The project is funded by the Atlantic Area Programme which promotes transnational cooperation projects in several fields including resource efficiency.

What will it do?


The project will develop an adequate institutional, social and technological environment to foster greater resource efficiency in water networks, including:

  • Completion of an energy recovery resource assessment in water networks in the AA
  • Completion of an economic/environmental impact assessment of this technology on the region
  • Development of design guidelines and support tools for hydropower energy recovery in drinking water, waste water, irrigation and process industry sectors.
  • Development of policy and institutional support tools to increase the implementation of energy recovery projects
  • Quantification of the societal impacts of hydropower energy recovery in water networks
  • Widespread dissemination and promotion of energy efficiency in AA water networks

The Water Industry


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.  It 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.
