New Water New Energy:

A Conference Linking Desalination and Renewable Energy
 

Join us for a day-and-a-half conference that aims to identify U.S. research needs concerning inland, small-scale, low-cost rural brackish desalination water projects using renewable energy such as solar, wind, geothermal, and waste heat sources.

The conference will bring together a diverse group to gain a better understanding of the topic through a training session on current European projects as well as other efforts in countries such as Australia. Leading international experts on desalination and renewable energy will address participants.

Breakout groups will meet to identify research priorities for projects along with potential collaborations for proposed projects. The final plenary session will include the presentation of proposed projects where projects are discussed and ranked.

The conference will also include a session for posters and presentations on any water related research topic. Tours of the Brackish Groundwater National Desalination Research Facility also are offered.
