Water Innovation Network (WIN)

  1. Water Innovation Network (WIN)A Community Platform for Advancing Clean Water Solutions Presentation by: Mazdak Arabi Kevin Gertig Wade Troxell
  2. The Global Water MarketThe latest estimates put the size of the global watermarket at over USD 480 billion in 2010*:  Expected to expand to $1 trillion by 2020  USD 175 billion for municipal and industrial water and wastewater capital expenditure.  Services, engineering, operation, maintenance and chemical make up the rest of the market. * Global Water Intelligence. 2011. Global Water Market 2010.
  3. The Global Water Market The U.S. market is expected to grow in the coming years, driven by increased levels of investment along the water value chain.  Innovation is key. Natural Water Clean Wastewater/Precipitation Water Storage / Water Water Use Sewage Sources Transport Supply Treatment
  4. Path to Water Policy Research Insight Policy Data  Critical Processes  Clean Water Act Content  Key actions  Safe Drinking Water Act Information  Natural variability  Energy Development Analytics  Spatiotemporal  Cap and Trade heterogeneity  Water Right Compacts Models  Anthropogenic impacts Regulations, Disaster Prevention Government
  5. Smart Water SolutionsInnovation Insight Market Need for Private Investment capital Ability to accelerate 10x return to investors is slow
  6. Essential PartnershipsHigher levels of collaboration between publicsector, private sector and academia is neededfor innovation across water value chain. Ability to scale Demonstrate value proposition Go to market strategy
  7. Water Innovation NetworkA triple helix collaboration between  University;  Private sector;  Governmentthat creates an innovation platformfor advancing development,demonstration and commercializationof clean water technologies.

  10. Targeted Value ChainFocus on tackling science, technology and policy challengeswith ultimate goal of supporting decision making:  Wastewater treatment and sewer systems  Water supply and demand issues  Flood control and drought management  Watershed management  Respond to the changing land use/climate  Issues at the nexus of land, water and energy  The interplay between socioeconomic and environmental factors (tradeoffs)
  11. WIN Value Proposition A unique system to collect water data: Cache la Poudre A collaborative platform to deposit data, knowledge and ideas; sort, summarize, digest, clarify, and compare them across distance and time
  12. WIN Value Proposition A live laboratory to demonstrate innovative technologies/policies:  scalability and value proposition A venue for clean water companies, and research and education groups to showcase their talent Training facilities and expertise with a focus on building international relations
