The mission of the Water and Energy Technology Team (WETT) at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) encompasses efforts to:
- Better understand the fundamental science, applied technology, and economics of the water/energy nexus, focusing on the interaction between human and natural systems;
- Develop new technologies, practices, and approaches for working with key players involved throughout the water/energy interrelationship;
- In an integrated and comprehensive manner, compare the technical feasibility and economic efficiency of newly developing technologies, practices, and policies to existing ones; and
- Optimize and test new technologies, practices, and policies that promote water and energy sustainability.
Our multi-faceted mission is commensurate with the complex interrelated nature of water and energy resources.
