Rego Open for Sydney Water Innovation Festival

Food scraps, wastewater, fats, oils and grease from homes and businesses could be diverted from landfill. They will be converted to renewable energy, potentially generating enough energy to power 120,000 new homes. 

The Sydney Water Innovation Festival (#SWIF22) brings together diverse perspectives in a creative and safe environment to connect and co-create ideas to solve some of the greatest challenges facing the water industry and broader society.

This year’s focus is on reconnecting people with urban waterways across five action-packed days. There will be a big focus on opening swim sites as part of our Summer of Swimming in conjunction with the Urban Plunge initiative.

Sydney Water will showcase emerging innovations and technologies and some of our innovation success stories in the water industry. The Great Debate with the UK will also be back, along with entertainment, networking and engagement opportunities.

Attendees will experience inspiring keynote speakers, design sprints, hackathons and Tech Tank-style events.

We’re also partnering with a range of sponsors to bring this event to life – including Confluence Water – Sydney Water’s North Delivery Team, Wipro and Water Services Association of Australia (WSAA) as Platinum sponsors, Salesforce, Microsoft, Schneider Electric as Gold sponsors, VeoliaArup and Cisco as Silver sponsors as well as Telstra, Macquarie University, Hunter Water and Delivering 4 Customers (D4C) as Bronze sponsors.

Sydney Water General Manager of Business Development Chris Gould said he’s looking forward to this year’s festival.

“Our motivation for SWIF is to encourage a culture of innovation and create a better life with world-class water services,” Gould said.

“We want to empower our people and partners to move beyond their ‘day jobs.’ We want them to take the opportunity to create fresh ideas and projects that will deliver value to our customers.”
