The Renewable Energy Technology Deployment, a sub-group of the International Energy Agency with the mandate to accelerate the market introduction and deployment of renewable energy technologies, issued in 2012 a report on the possibility of deploying renewable energy technologies into remote islands and regions. The communities studied in the report live in different climate conditions and latitudes, from Alaska to Spain, from Japan to Ecuador, but face similar problems in terms of distance from more populated areas.
This presentation on solar-driven water treatment was given by SolarSpring’s Dip.-Ing. Lorenz Bauer at Intersolar Europe in June 2014. After a short introduction on SolarSprings’ products and activities, the speaker presented 4 different solar water treatment projects that were conducted in India. These 4 projects use specific solar disinfection systems and their aim is to provide sufficient safe drinking water to the communities’ populations and create an optimized municipal waste water treatment.
