Interdependencies between Water, Energy, and Food 0 C. Courter The U.S. Departments of Energy (DOE) and Agriculture (USDA) are asking for input on the interdependencies between water, energy, and food.  The DOE and USDA are looking for your ideas, experiences, and expertise on these interconnections, including challenges you've overcome or solutions that could be implemented on a larger scale.  Please submit your input at through June 27th (this is part of the "National Day of Civic Hacking").  Suggested topics include: Using recovered resources from wastewater treatment plants as agricultural fertilizer; Decreasing the water impact of biofuels; Determining the embedded energy and water in food; and Reducing food waste or using in beneficially.   Forward from the National Association of Clean Water Agencies (NACWA)

Senate Approves Smart Water Program in Energy Bill 0 C. Courter Senate Approves Smart Water Program in Energy Bill: The Senate last month approved a new pilot program to help communities and water utilities plan and demonstrate innovative technologies to increase energy and water efficiency.  Passed as part of “Energy Policy Modernization Act” (S. 2012), the “Smart Energy and Water Efficiency Pilot Program” would award between three and five grants to municipalities or water utilities that propose innovative technology-based solutions that increase the energy and water efficiency of water, wastewater, and water reuse systems.  Grant applications would be evaluated by the Energy Department, and projects would have to be completed within five years.  The bill authorizes $15 million to carry out the program.

FY 2016-2017 Fed Budget (Exerpt from WEF Announcement) 0 C. Courter The President's Budget includes approximately $300M in new funding to support the Administration’s water innovation strategy.  The strategy focuses on water sustainability and reducing the price and energy costs of new water supply technology to address resiliency, climate change and population growth.  However, none of this new funding is directed towards programs that directly support EPA programs that WEF members have traditionally benefited from.

DOE expanding efficiency programs to water 0 C. Courter DOE expanding efficiency programs to water (AWWA Announcement) The U.S. Department of Energy recently announced that it is expanding efficiency programs to reach water and wastewater utilities under the supervision of the department’s Advanced Manufacturing Office. Among them is The Better Plants Program, a voluntary recognition program to support a 25 percent improvement in energy intensity over 10 years. All water utilities in the United States are eligible to become a Better Plants Partner, regardless of size or level of energy management expertise. As partners in the program, the utilities will receive access to technical experts who can provide help in establishing and analyzing key energy performance metrics, assistance in identifying emerging energy-efficient technologies and networking, and peer-to-peer sharing with other partners.  Partners in the BPP can also receive technical in-plant training opportunities on common energy-use systems and plant-wide energy management; access to proven energy analysis software tools; priority access to DOE's Industrial Assessment Centers; and national recognition, including letters from DOE leadership, certificates, invitations to special events, media opportunities and more.  Interested utilities are encouraged to visit and to contact Scott Hutchins at DOE with questions (please mention that you heard about this opportunity through AWWA).
