Pilot Projects

Within the scope of the Pilot Projects, the Consortium Partners provide free support to Portuguese water supply and/or wastewater management utilities interested in making investments to improve the energy efficiency of their systems.

In March 2024, a cooperation protocol was established between WENexus and Águas do Algarve, which sets out the scope of the Pilot Projects to be developed with this management utility and the support to be provided by the WENexus team.
