IAHR, founded in 1935, is a worldwide independent member-based organisation of engineers and water specialists working in fields related to the hydro-environmental sciences and their practical application. Activities range from river and maritime hydraulics to water resources development and eco-hydraulics, through to ice engineering, hydroinformatics, and hydraulic machinery.

ABSTRACT
Existing water utility networks provides a wide, distributed and unexploited hydropower potential. The installation of
energy recovery stations on existing infrastructures limits both the required investment and the environmental impact.
The counter-rotating runners micro-turbine presented in this paper is a new technology dedicated to the harvesting of
energy on drinking water network. An analytical model of the machine’s efficiency – the so-called hill chart – is used to
investigate the runners’ speeds command laws that maximize the recovered energy on the wide range of consumerdriven
flow discharge experienced on water utilities.
