David Sedlak, CEE Professor and co-director of the Berkeley Water Center, will be leading efforts to create a technology roadmap for desalination that will allow the National Alliance for Water Innovation (NAWI) team to identify the greatest needs and most important opportunities for meeting the goal of reducing the cost of desalination.

NAWI, a consortium led by Berkeley Lab and that includes researchers from Berkeley Engineering, has been awarded a 5-year, $100 million Energy-Water Desalination Hub by the US Department of Energy (pending appropriations).

The hub intends to address water security issues in the US, focusing on early-stage research and development for energy-efficient and cost-competitive desalination technologies and for treating non-traditional water sources for various end uses.
