Technological Solutions for Energy Recovery

We are exploring the potential of three smart and low-carbon technological approaches for energy recovery in the water sector: micro-hydropower, drain water heat recovery and smart network controls. To ensure that low-carbon solutions are achieved, we have adopted a collective eco-design approach in the design, installation and operation and maintenance for these technologies.
