FULL PROJECT INFORMATION
LIFEHYGENET is a project that aims to generate clean electricity from the use of kinetic and potential energy currently wasted in the distribution networks and potable water supply, through a modular power generator system built at pilot plant level.
The project will be implemented in Mieres del Camino, in Asturias (Spain).
The main objective of the project is focused on producing “green electricity”, contributing with it to the fulfilment of the European Commission’s agreements regarding the increased use of renewable energy sources.
Thereby helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and therefore the compliance with the Kyoto protocol and with the Renewable Energy Plan of the Spanish Government (PER 2011-2020) which set the target to achieve 268 MW in installations with less than 1MW.
To achieve this general goal, it will be necessary to establish the individual objectives shown below:
