Event description

Description

Presented by, Marina Freire-Gormaly, MASc., EIT, B.A.Sc. in Engineering Science, LEED GA

Globally, over 500 million people lack access to clean drinking water. Many of these communities are located where there is a high solar resource. One innovative solution for remote communities that lack access to grid electricity uses solar panels coupled with reverse osmosis water treatment for community-scale water systems that are stand-alone, autonomous and require minimal operator intervention. The design uses minimal batteries to decrease costs and ensure long-term system reliability. Through an automated design algorithm, an experimental lab-scale system, a pilot-scale plant and an operating system in La Mancalona, Mexico, the behaviour of these systems and improved operating methods have been developed. An automated design method was also developed to enable the widespread adoption of this technology. The results, analysis and sample designs for new locations will be presented.
