Energy Water Nexus Technical Conference // Driving Savings in Manufacturing

The largest category for water consumption in the US is electric power generation. Similarly, the largest demand for electricity is water extraction and distribution. This strong interdependence drives great opportunity in the Energy-Water Nexus (EWN) to impact both energy and water consumption.

he fourth and most recent Midwest Energy Research Consortium Strategic Roadmap was completed in early 2017 in conjunction with The Water Council. The report and subsequent Working Group seek to identify specific EWN applications, benefits, target markets, industry categories, technologies and products, and active companies within the EWN market space.

Topics

  • The Policy Context of the Energy Water Nexus in Manufacturing
  • Energy and water savings created by membrane and AC drive technology in the manufacturing process and the barriers to wide-adoption
  • Fostering an Energy Water Nexus focus within a company: Case Studies.
