Participants hailed from national labs, academia and 26 companies representing seven industry sectors including Intel Corp., J.R. Simplot Co., Inland Empire Paper Co. and PacifiCorp. Speakers included experts from INL, University of Wyoming, University of Idaho and trade groups like the Northwest Food Processors Association. Leadership REGIONAL INDUSTRYWATER-ENERGYWORKSHOP Helping Industry Achieve a SustainableWater-Energy Footprint Energy and water influence almost every aspect of human life. Everything from business and trade to health and sustenance, energy and transportation relies on water. It takes sizable volumes of water to create food and energy. This “nexus” is where food, water and energy systems overlap and where one system increasingly depends more and more on the other for sustainability. This interdependence will be a major challenge for the future. The Industry Water-Energy Workshop hosted by the Center for Advanced Energy Studies is a new approach to addressing the world’s water-energy challenges. The workshop will identify regionally relevant industry R&D needs and help establish regional collaborators for water-energy-related research. Energy Innovation Laboratory 775 University Blvd. Idaho Falls, Idaho July 26-27, 2016 The workshop will consist of a one-day meeting with discussions on how industry participants are building sustainable water-energy strategies and the technical, research, development and financial needs and approaches to attaining water- energy sustainability. The day will include presentations from seven regional industry sectors that use large quantities of water and are recognized for advances in water sustainability: bioenergy, chemicals, energy resources 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, including the possibility of developing a water-energy research consortium.
