New white paper showcases learnings from Water Innovation Summit

Whitney Michael

Today we released a whitepaper covering the findings from September’s invitation-only Water Innovation Summit.

The report touches on the utility perspective on innovation, smart water networks, financing innovation, sustainable water management in the oil and gas sector, opportunities in water and agriculture, and securing clean water for industries.  Download the whitepaper for free.

The Water Innovation Summit was held as part of Cleantech Group’s ongoing effort to support the water technology community. The key takeaways and learnings covered in the report include:

  • Innovation at a water utility is driven by 3 C’s: Cost, Crisis, and Cool.
  • “Water as a Service” is a new and innovative business model that can help entrepreneurs sell to conservative, financially-strapped water utilities.
  • We are shifting from an ‘era of water development’ to an ‘era of water allocation’ (water rights).
  • The water-energy nexus is more than ever appropriately the water-energy-food nexus.
The 2013 Water Innovation Summit is scheduled for September 10-11.  While invitations will not go out until Summer 2013, you can request an invitation today.  Additional information on water innovation investment trends and the companies involved in this market can be found in Cleantech Group’s i3 market intelligence platform.
