Policy enabling the broader adoption of innovation
Water Innovation Policy Fellowship
Imagine H2O awarded two outstanding graduate students with a Fellowship to spearhead advancement of a policy solution that accelerates the deployment of water-energy nexus technologies in California. Mentored by a mentor and a team of policy and subject-matter experts, Fellows have been conducting research, engaging stakeholders and developing and implementing a strategy to advance their chosen policy initiative.
Read about their chosen policy below.
In September 2018, eight graduate students from top California universities were sponsored to join Imagine H2O in San Francisco for the Global Climate Action Summit. With the help of their professors, the Policy Advisory Council and Imagine H2O, each developed a policy proposal aimed at enabling the broader adoption of innovation addressing challenges at the Water-Energy Nexus.
