In 2014, Jerome joined Idaho Power's wastewater energy efficiency cohort which aims to bring together city employees to reduce energy use through a series of innovative workshops using no- and low-cost energy-saving techniques and organizational strategies.
The recently completed wastewater treatment plant upgrades includes: new clarifiers; a new aeration basin; new energy efficient anaerobic digesters; energy-efficient turbo blowers with controls; LED lighting and efficient HVAC units.
The energy efficiency measures are expected to save the plant more than 5,193,000 kWh per year. ( Source: Idaho Power, MagicValley.com, Jerome News, 14 July, 2019) Contact: City of Jerome, Wastwater Dept., : 208-324-7122, www.ci.jerome.id.us/201/Wastewater-Department

The biofuel was produced in the UAE by the not-for-profit Masdar Institute of Science and Technology's Sustainable Bioenergy Research Consortium (SBRC), a part of the Khalifa University of Science and Technology.
The biofuel fuel was derived from oil in Salicornia plants grown on the two-hectare Seawater Energy and Agriculture System (SEAS) farm -- a desert ecosystem designed to produce fuel and food in saltwater -- in Masdar City.

Qualifying research will address fundamental scientific and engineering challenges of generating power from dynamic, low-velocity and high-density waves and currents, while surviving in corrosive ocean environments that are intensified by high costs and lengthy permitting processes.
The funding opportunity includes three topic areas:
Early Stage Device Design Research; Controls and PTO Design Integration and Testing; and Dissemination of Environmental Data and Analyses to Facilitate the Marine Energy Regulatory Process.
