Intelligent irrigation management to optimize water and energy resources

The objective of the WEAM4i project is to develop a platform for the management of two innovative concepts in irrigation management:

An intelligent network of water and energy that allows an almost elastic demand
And a service-oriented cloud platform for decision making.

The consortium, led by Meteosim and ADASA, is made up of 17 members from five European countries with complementary resources and capabilities – companies, industry, research centers, irrigation associations and public bodies.

The increase in the cost of energy is one of the main concerns for agriculture, responsible for 30% of total water consumption in Europe, and up to 70% in some countries in the south of the continent.

WEAM4i will allow an estimated reduction of around 5-6% in water use and 15% in the cost associated with energy.
