Water and energy are profoundly connected and sustainable management of either resource requires consideration of the other. As the need for energy increases, the need for water also increases, and vice versa. With the growing human population there is growing demand for both of these resources. It takes a considerable amount of water to produce energy for fuel production, cooling, and power production. It also takes a large amount of energy to extract, treat, and transport water for household, commercial and industrial uses. Lowering demand for both energy and water would help to mitigate greenhouse gases and climate change. Water and energy efficiency will also become increasingly necessary for climate adaptation. Our upcoming webinar will feature several case studies that examine this connection, and reveal fresh approaches to the management of energy and water.
Speakers include Ned Spang, Ph.D., Program Manager for the UC Davis Center for Water-Energy Efficiency; Heather Cooley, Director of the Pacific Institute’s Water Program; and Amanda Acheson, Sustainable Building Program Manager for Coconino County, Arizona.
