What is NEWIN?

The NorthEast Water Innovation Network (NEWIN) was conceived in Massachusetts in 2011, incorporated in January 2014 and since then has been reaching out to the NorthEast region and beyond, to establish best practices in order to accelerate innovation.  We recognize that bringing water technologies to market is a long process and aim to provide the forum and the path to be most efficient.

GLOBAL HEADWINDS ARE WORSENING 

WATER SCARCITY, QUALITY AND AFFORDABILITY

  • By 2050, the global population will exceed 9-billion people, further exacerbating the water scarcity we experience today, and increasing demand in water-intense industries like Food and Energy.
  • The investment gap for water infrastructure exceeds $2T globally. There is insufficient capital available to address our water infrastructure needs.
  • If we are to meet the global water challenges, we must innovate, and find better, more effective and more cost-effective ways of ensuring water is available, safe and affordable.
  • Innovation includes, but is not limited to, technology. We must also innovate with business models, risk models, regulatory models and financing.

YESTERDAY’S SOLUTIONS CANNOT SOLVE TODAY’S PROBLEMS!


GLOBAL HEADWINDS

  • Population Growth
  • Urbanization
  • Industrialization
