CAES Industry Water-Energy WorkshopDate: July 31, 2016Time: 4:00 - 5:00 pmContact: Dena TomchakEmail: Dena.Tomchak@inl.gov
Location: 775 University Blvd, Idaho Falls, ID 83401, USA
We welcome you to the Center for Advanced Energy Studies Industry Water-Energy Workshop and thank you for your participation in this unique approach to addressing the world's water-energy challenges.
To help accomplish this goal, CAES is currently developing the CAES Joint Center for Water-Energy Research. The objective of the Center is to develop relevant capabilities and key industry relationships to enable the pursuit of energy-water nexus-related development and pursue R&D funding opportunities. These efforts will:
- assist industry in its pursuit of better ways of managing and optimizing the efficiency and resilience of its energy and water systems,
- contribute to the Regional Clean Energy Innovation Initiative, and
- expand and develop each of the CAES mission areas.
As part of this effort, the workshop will help identify and map regionally-relevant industry R&D needs and help establish CAES go-to organizations (regional collaborators) for water-energy-related research.
The workshop is aimed at the water-energy industry in the Intermountain Region. It will consist of a
day meeting with presentations from seven regional industry sectors that use large quantities of water and are recognized for their advances in water sustainability: bioenergy, chemicals, energy resources extraction, electricity conversion/production, food processing, pulp & paper, and semiconductor/computing/high-tech.
There will also be individual breakout sessions for each of the aforementioned industry participants to aggregate R&D needs and discuss appropriate "next steps" for all parties.
We again thank you for participating in this meeting/workshop.
Please RSVP by July 5, 2016, via a short, online registration form .
