Water and energy have crucial impacts on poverty alleviation. And these are data from the United Nations, which have focused the theme of World Water Day (22 March) of the year 2014 "water and energy", because they are closely related.

From ACCIONA not only we join this day, but we seek the use of resources minimizing the CO2 emissions. For example, we have developed an innovative method that allows us to use the methane gas generated in the desalination and water treatment plants, to produce the amount of energy the plant itself needs to run. You may watch this video for more information. We hope you like it!
