"It takes a team to build a dream"


The statement above is very true when working towards a better, more sustainable future, and highlights the teamwork vision of the INNOZOWA collaboration. Our consortium of four partners, each bringing its own expertise and network, is working on a revolutionary method to generate solar energy on inland waterways.

Dutch Water Authority Rivierenland

Dutch Water Authority Rivierenland

Initiator of INNOZOWA. The water authority is leading in the field of sustainability and innovation. Its internal ambitions to attain energy neutrality and to improve water management inspired the initiation of the project. Dutch Water Authority Rivierenland is the end user of INNOZOWA and in the development will employ its expertise in the field of water management and water maintenance, as well as function as project coordinator.
