"Water Resource Challenges and Opportunities
for Water Technology Innovation

December 2015

At present, the cost and energy intensities of desalinated water are prohibitive for most communities, and particularly high for seawater which is higher in salinity than brackish water.

ambitious target levels would stand at less than $0.50 spent in total cost, 1 kWhe of energy consumed, and less than 1 pound of carbon dioxide generated over the course of producing 1 cubic meter of water.

Achieving these targets would require approximately a 4-times improvement in cost, a 3-times reduction in electricity usage, and a 2-times reduction in carbon dioxide emissions over existing seawater desalination technologies to achieve cost-competitive pipe parity."
