Breakout Session EPRI 11/09/10


Developing a vision for integrated
water/energy/waste distributed
systems



Drivers


Benefits and Opportunities


Applications (retrofit and
greenfield
)


Political and social barriers


Challenges (smart grid)


Economies of scale to economies of integration



Next Steps


Identifying who should be
involved?


EPRI,
WaterRF
, WERF,
WateReuse

RF, ASME, National Labs,
State government (policy), someone from solid waste


Create structure


Identify methods within each core silo


water/wastewater/
solid waste/energy


Identify overlaps




Draft Proposal


Lead organization


ASME?


Define scope and objectives


Assembly existing case studies


bring in
utlities


Bring to federal agencies together to request
money


EPA, DOE (Nick!!),


Find endorsers
