The Water Energy and Technology (WET) Center provides entrepreneurs and innovators the ability to test new products and to also access business and industry support systems to aid in the commercialization of new technologies.
The purpose of the BlueTechValley Initiative is to spur growth and help turn entrepreneurial visions into real-world solutions for managing our finite resources: water and energy. The initiative’s hub is Fresno – the heart of Central California’s San Joaquin Valley – home to a number of rural and urban communities, boasting a unique ecosystem that sustains a robust culture of water innovation. Its water-scare climate fuels the need for extreme water efficiency, making it the ideal place to test, develop, and commercialize new technology.
