Demonstration sites

Demonstration sites are pilot scale deployments of new technology which serve as a place for interaction and learning and to expand the possibilities of early-adoption by end-users. 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

This demonstration site has been built and is awaiting for grid connection.

This demonstration site is now operational, and the official opening day took place on 2/5/19.

Drain water heat-recovery demonstration sites

This National Trust demonstration site at Penrhyn Castle in Wales is currently built and operational.

Drain Water Heat Recovery Site 2:  
Industrial wastewater treatment plant

This demonstration site has passed the feasibility studies phase and will be operational in Summer 2020.
