Renewable Energy Desalination (AG025)

Action Group Tab

Renewable Energy Desalination (AG025)

The Action Group will promote the use of desalination powered by renewable energy, as an environmentally friendly and decentralised solution for sustainable water supply.

The implementation of RE-Desalination faces several technological, economical, social and institutional barriers that will be addressed in this Action Group.

The Action Group will coordinate and promote research, development and innovation on RE-Desalination, in order to support the development and commercialization of RE-Desalination products at concrete sites. Furthermore, the Action Group will address awareness raising & training and demonstrate market potential, in an international context. The promotion of legal structures and policies will be investigated to facilitate and drive deployment.

Main Objectives:

•Improve RE-desalination technology and reduce its costs.

•Establish an economic and institutional support system for RE-desalination.

•Increase awareness on RE-desalination.

•Bring new technologies to the market.
