Beyond efforts toward project management and reporting, the project is organized according to eight project tasks focused on the development of the EWDSS. The initial foundation for this tool is Sandia National Laboratories (Sandia) Energy-Power-Water Simulation (EPWSim) model. This existing
framework provides an interactive environment for exploring trade-offs, and “best” alternatives among a broad list of energy/water options and objectives. The framework currently supports prototype modules for calculating thermoelectric power demand and related water use; water demand from competing use sectors; surface and groundwater availability, and; an energy for water calculator. Each of these modules
will be updated and expanded, while additional process modules will be added.
