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.
