3rd Stakeholder Exchange Forum
The third SEF was held on 25th October 2017 at Albufeira, Algarve. Several stakeholders from different water related entities were invited and we had 32 participants. It was held in the afternoon, following the workshop so that participants in the SEF could first have information about the project and its developments. Participants were divided in 3 groups that were asked to discuss the following topics:
• The importance of modelling as a support tool for operational management;
• Barriers to the adoption of energy efficiency measures in water supply systems;
• The evaluation of water losses in adductor systems.
Each group in the end presented the conclusions to all participants. This was a very useful and productive exercise that provided us interesting and important information of the sector that will be very useful in the project implementation and future exploitation of the SWSS platform.
