This survey aims to understand the drivers, opportunities and constraints to the adoption of micro hydropower (MHP) in water networks. It is part of an EU project titled: Reducing Energy Dependencies in Water Networks (REDAWN) which aims to investigate and propose innovative policy, technological and social-economic solutions to promote and support the wider use of MHPs in the Atlantic Area. The EU’s Atlantic Area consists of Ireland, Portugal, parts of the United Kingdom, France and Spain. The project will also propose information tools and demonstration sites to enable community groups, organisations and institutions to investigate and implement MHPs in their water networks.
Your contribution through this survey will help to understand the needs, opportunities and barriers to the adoption of renewable energy sources such as micro hydro power (MHP) systems in your area. The information you provide will inform the REDAWN research activities and help us to propose practical tools and recommend policy strategies to support and encourage the use of MHPs for social, economic and environmental benefit.
