2. Water & Energy
The Water & Energy Award identifies and promotes energy-saving innovation in moving, treating, and using water and wastewater. The world’s future water supply system is inextricably linked with energy, and this award serves to highlight ideas, applications and solutions that will bring about energy efficiency, innovation and circular usage – perhaps using smart, digital technologies to achieve this.
We want to hear from processes and applications which demonstrate innovation in renewable energy, alternative energy sources, efficient energy use, or the development of water and energy production methods which reduce the use and intensity of both.
Entrants must have references demonstrating energy-saving results; judges are looking for case-studies showing cost-centres turning into profit-centres, and those projects which unlock important energy potential, making water infrastructure efficient and robust to face the future.
