UCI in $50M Water-Energy Project

The University of California-Irvine is part of a team that will study water use and energy production under a $50 million grant.

UCI researchers will work with UC campuses in Berkeley, Los Angeles, Davis, and Merced; Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory; and the ecology and economics nonprofit Stockholm Environmental Institute in Somerville, Mass., on research that includes water treatment and water use at electricity plants.

The $50 million over five years will come from the U.S. Dept. of Energy, contributing 25%; Southern California Gas Co. and Southern California Edison, giving 25%; and China’s Ministry of Science and Technology, putting in 50%.

The project falls under the purview of the U.S.-China Clean Energy Research Center begun in 2009 by the U.S. and Chinese governments.
