Green start-up Pydro develops energy self-sufficient sensors for the intelligent water infrastructure in order to be able to collect and transmit data permanently in water supply networks.
According to studies, on average 30 percent of the treated water worldwide is lost due to leaks. The nationwide development of intelligent water infrastructures, so-called “smart water” networks, could significantly reduce water losses and energy costs. However, this requires a large amount of data to be available in real time and transmitted at any time. So far, problems related to the power supply of the systems have limited the use of new smart technologies.
This is where Pydro’s new technology intervenes. The developed energy self-sufficient multi-sensors supply themselves with recovered energy from the flow in water pipes and can thus measure and transmit data in real time.
