The Smart Polder provides sustainable water management solutions, in addition to clean water. This intelligent network of energy-neutral pumping stations provide city-level climate change mitigation and adaptation. By applying a combination of existing energy techniques, an existing dedicated surface water pumping station can be transformed into a power station for renewable energy production.
Using rain forecasts and the monitoring of water levels, water management systems can be powered by cheap renewable energy and contribute to the stability of the local power grid. The Smart Polder can simultaneously pump water, generate and store energy and prevent urban environmental hazards. These benefits promise an improvement in the quality of urban life and environment.
