Description :
In the framework of the development of a master plan for drinking water supply in rural settlements of size ranging from 2 000 to 10 000 population, IED was commissioned to :
* make an inventory of existing water supply systems and to examine in some typical centres their energy consumption patterns,
* propose alternative options using solar or thermal energy sources applicable to the conditions of these localities, specifying the type of operating and investment and operational costs (solar and thermal)
   ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Description of the Actual Services Provided Tasks carried out by IED experts consisted of :
* conducting a ten-day field mission to assess existing systems,
* identifying products best suited to different demand patterns, taking into account operating costs, emphasising energy and water supply synergies both in terms of design and operation and maintenance.
