Instead of a wall, build a first-of-its-kind energy park that spans the 1,954 miles of the border between the United States and Mexico to bring energy, water, jobs and border security to the region. That's the plan put forward by a consortium of 28 engineers and scientists.
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced a prize competition to spur innovation in wave energy-powered desalination systems.
Secretary of Energy Rick Perry announced the launch of the Water Security Grand Challenge, a White House-initiated, U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) led framework to advance transformational technology and innovation to meet the global need for safe, secure, and affordable water.
A new system devised by MIT engineers could provide a low-cost source of drinking water for parched cities around the world while also cutting power plant operating costs.
Dignitaries joined San Antonio Water System in celebrating the introduction of a truly new drinking water source to the city — desalination. The SAWS project pumps salty — or brackish — water from deep in the Wilcox Aquifer under south Bexar County as the source for this purified drinking water.
