The project proposes solutions for real-time water quality monitoring, early detection and localization of leakages, energy optimization
CLEAN WATER AND SANITATION
Ensure access to water and sanitation for all
Over 2,000 million people in the world live without access to a basic drinking water service, and 3,6 billionhave no access to a basic sanitation service, resulting in avoidable deaths, chronic disease, fewer hours of education and low productivity.
ACCIONA has positioned itself as a key player in the water treatment sector. Its innovative management seeks to resolve the challenges with respect to the shortage of water resources.
Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts
The generation and use of energy accounts for 35 % of total greenhouse gas emissions in the world. This activity is the largest contributor to global warming. Investment in renewable energy, energy efficiency and other low-carbon technologies will continue to be essential to meet the emerging needs of humanity and to minimize their negative impact on the environment.
ACCIONA considers the fight against climate change and its effects to be a strategic priority. The company works to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions in order to contribute to the progress of society and respond to the main challenges of sustainable development in the areas of infrastructure, water and energy, leading the transition to a low-carbon economy.
The objective of the project is to incorporate the water supply concept to the smart city concept and to demonstrate several technological solutions in some European cities, each of them with different characteristics and water problems from the management and supply point of view. The goal is to develop an integrated solution that can be easily implemented in other cities.
The project proposes solutions for real-time water quality monitoring, early detection and localization of leakages, energy optimization of the distribution network and improving the interaction with consumers. The project has taken place in the cities of Leeuwarden (The Netherlands), Reading (United Kingdom), Lille (France) and Burgos (Spain). The water business of ACCIONA has coordinated the activities in Burgos, in the so-called SWING demonstration site (Smart Water Innovation Network in the city of Burgos).
The actions have been carried out in:
- Leeuwarden (Netherlands)
- Reading (United Kingdom)
- Lille (France)
- Burgos (Spain)
ACCIONA's Water business has coordinated the activities carried out in Burgos, in the demonstration site called SWING (Smart Water Innovation Network in the city of Burgos).
