The Clean Energy Solutions Center, in partnership with the Organization of American States (OAS), and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) will convene a webinar to spark a dialogue on ways to integrate existing proven technologies into sustainable systems that can provide access to fresh water, generate green electricity and manage renewable energy variability.
MIT will present its concept of Integrated Pumped Hydro Reverse Osmosis System (IPHROS). Oceanus Power & Water LLC will share its experience on building an integrated system in Mexico. The Clean Energy Solutions Center will elaborate on its strategies to help governments design and adopt policies and programs that support the deployment of clean energy technologies through its “Ask an Expert” service.
The webinar is convened under the auspices of the Energy and Climate Partnership of the Americas, an initiative geared toward promoting regional energy cooperation for achieving a cleaner, safer, efficient, modern and fair energy deployment. The Organization of American States operates the Partnership’s Technical Coordination Unit.
