Accelerating Irrigation Modernization

The US Department of Energy’s Water Power Technologies Office (WPTO) is accelerating reinvestment in the nation’s irrigation systems to simultaneously promote farmers’ and rural communities’ economic well-being, generate more renewable energy, advance environmental stewardship, and enable agricultural decarbonization. Idaho National Laboratory and Pacific Northwest National Laboratory have developed a decision support and visualization tool called IrrigationViz to analyze the costs and benefits of modernization.

This webinar is part of the WPTO "R&D Deep Dive" series to share updates on tools, analysis, and emerging technologies to advance marine energy as well as next generation hydropower and pumped storage systems.

These webinars will feature WPTO technology managers, DOE National Laboratory research experts, and other partners, and will highlight WPTO's research and development efforts for the hydropower and marine energy industries. These webinars are an opportunity for stakeholders to provide feedback on tool developments, learn about the latest water power research findings, and get trained up on new resources available to support water power technology development. Each webinar presentation will close with a Q&A.
