WEAM4i Overview

WEAM4i (Water & Energy Advanced Management for Irrigation) is a European project co-funded by the European Union under the 7th Framework Program within ENV-2013-WATER-INNO-DEMO-1 (Challenge 6.3: Improving resource efficiency), with a budget of 7.6 M € over 42 months, and started officially on November 1st, 2013.

The WEAM4i consortium is led by companies Meteosim and Adasa, and is composed of 17 members from different fields – business, research, irrigation communities and public agencies and organizations – from five European countries: Spain, Germany, Portugal, The Netherlands and France.

The project addresses two of the priorities outlined by the European Innovation Partnership on Water, an initiative of the European Commission (DG- Environment): ‘Water- Energy Nexus’ and ‘Decision Support Systems (DSS) and monitoring’.

The aim of the project is to improve the efficiency of water use and reduce the costs of power irrigation systems.  It is planned to develop a smart network for the management of irrigation that will act interactively on the rational use of water and energy.

The results will be tested and evaluated in three regions of the European Union covering a wide range of crops, water resources and energy markets: Aragon (Spain), Lower Saxony (Germany) and Alentejo (Portugal).
