This market transformation study funded

This market transformation project explored strategies and technologies for substantially reducing California's potable water demand while also supporting electric reliability and reducing GHG emissions. The geographic focus of this study was Tulare County, heart of California's agricultural economy.

This white paper mapped data and processes in the CPUC's Water-Energy Calculator to specific language in the State's water-energy nexus rulemaking to determine the changes needed to implement the CPUC's directives.

This white paper mapped data and processes

This study about the natural gas intensity of water was conducted pursuant to a CPUC regulatory proceeding requiring determination of need for a separate calculator to estimate the amount of natural gas embedded in water.

This innovative water-energy partnership evaluated Irvine Ranch Water District's historical, current, and future electric uses to identify opportunities for water sector electric reliability projects. From the baseline assessment, a framework for co-development and implementation of "non-conventional" water sector energy projects water developed.
