Technology solutions for the water-energy nexus @ India Water Week 2017

Technology solutions for the water-energy nexus @ India Water Week 2017

The India-EU Water Partnership (IEWP) aims to showcase experiences and technological solutions by European Union research and innovation institutions and business on addressing the water-energy nexus challenges. These solutions look at consuming less energy for water supply and wastewater treatment, or the use of renewable energies.

The session will start with a short description of the enabling framework (regulation, finance) and already-existing technologies in India, followed by the presentation of a handful of EU technologies, some of which have already been implemented at pilots in India. The technologies are presented by research and innovation institutes and private business. All presentations and the discussion shall address the achievements so far, remaining gaps and the transferability of the experience to India.

You are kindly invited to participate! For India Water Week, please register at: http://indiawaterweek.in/index.aspx.
