Industry Water-Energy WorkshopDate: Jul 26, 2016 - Jul 27, 2016 All DayContact: Dena TomchakEmail: Dena.Tomchak@inl.gov
Location: 775 University Blvd, Idaho Falls, ID 83401, USA
Workshop dates: July 26-27, 2016
The Center for Advanced Energy Studies is hosting an Industry Water-Energy Workshop. To address the world's water-energy challenges, CAES is exploring interest and ideas for developing a joint center for water-energy research. Its objective would be to develop relevant capabilities and industry relationships to enable pursuit of energy-water nexus-related research and development (R&D) and funding opportunities. These efforts could:
- Help industry pursue better ways of optimizing the efficiency and resilience of its energy and water systems,
- Contribute to INL’s Regional Clean Energy Innovation Initiative, and
- Expand and develop each of the CAES mission areas.
By focusing on the Intermountain Region, the workshop will help identify regionally relevant industry R&D needs and help establish regional research collaborators. The workshop will consist of a
day meeting with presentations from seven regional industry sectors that use large quantities of water and are recognized for advances in water sustainability: bioenergy, chemicals, energy resource extraction, electricity conversion/production, food processing, pulp and paper, and semiconductor/computing/high-tech.
There will also be individual breakout sessions for industry participants to aggregate R&D needs and discuss appropriate "next steps" for all parties. Please RSVP by July 5, 2016, via a short, online registration form .
