On June 29, the European project EERES4WATER, funded by the INTERREG Atlantic Area Programme, participated at the conference: “Carrefour des gestions locales de l’eau”,a major event on urban water celebrated in France.

Innovative solutions such as photovoltaic pumping, micro-turbining of water networks, solar decontamination of emerging pollutants and the development of a real-time predictive tool on water qualitywere presented at the event.

Germán López, energy technical officer at Technological Corporation of Andalusia (Spain)presented the EERES4WATER project and how the direct use of renewable energy sources and energy efficiency in the water cycle is been promoted by influencing related policies and introducing new processes and technologies.

Man-Yue Arthur LAM, associate researcher at the School of Engineering at Cardiff University (Wales) presented a real-time water quality predictive tool based on Artificial Intelligence.

Erik Zilliox, project manager at GIP Campus E.S.P.R.I.T. Industries (France) explained the work that is being carried out for the development of micro-turbining of water networks.

Luis Fialho and Maria Helena Novais, respectively researchers at the chair of renewable energies and at the water laboratory at the University of Évora (Portugal) took part on this event explained innovative solutions for the water cycle.
