Demonstration Sites

A fundamental deliverable of the Dwr Uisce project is to develop four demonstration sites, two micro-hydropower installations and two drain water heat recovery systems, to demonstrate energy recovery using both technologies in Ireland and Wales.

 

Micro-hydropower Demonstration Sites

Micro-hydropower Site 1:

Tŷ Mawr Wybrnant in Northern Wales

This demonstration site is currently under construction and will be active in late Summer 2018.

 

Micro-hydropower Site 2:

Blackstairs GWS in Ireland

This demonstration site is expected to be active by the end of 2018.

 

Drain Water Heat Recovery Demonstration Sites

Drain Water Heat Recovery Site 1:

Penrhyn Castle in Northern Wales

This National Trust demonstration site at Penrhyn Castle in Wales will be operational in Summer 2018.

 

Drain Water Heat Recovery Site 2

 

This demonstration site is expected to be active in Spring 2019.
