SAN ANTONIO — Accelerate H2O and Isle Inc. have entered into a partnership, according to a press release.

Accelerate H2O, under the agreement, will work with Isle to deliver a series of Technology Approval Group (TAG) meetings throughout 2015 in Texas, stated the release.

The 2015 meetings will follow Isle’s TAG format, which has delivered about 100 sessions throughout the world over the last 10 years, continued the release.

“The partnership between Accelerate H20 and Isle will provide a valuable contribution towards the objectives of both organizations,” said Ed Archuleta, chairman of the executive committee and former CEO and president of El Paso Water Utility. “Bringing the Isle TAG forums to Texas will not only supply Texas water agencies with a stream of new water technologies from around the world for evaluation which address their current and future challenges, it will also provide a direct channel for Texas-based water technologies to gain exposure and present their innovative offerings to the other global markets in which the Isle TAG forum operates.”

During the TAG meetings, innovative technologies selected by the attendee panel will be presented in hopes of receiving market feedback, validation and support for field trials or demonstration opportunities, helping to possibly reduce the time needed for commercialization, noted the release.

“Investment in new technology is desperately needed if the water industry is to tackle the challenges ahead,” said Isle Inc. President Bill Kelly. “This partnership between Accelerate H2O and Isle brings together the strengths of two organizations who share a common goal. We look forward to working with Accelerate H20 to bring new, innovative water technologies to the key stakeholders in Texas, as well as discovering new technologies within the state that we can introduce to the rest of the world.”
