Water-Energy Nexus Conference 2017 - Los Angeles

Water consumption and energy generation are inextricably related. Recent factors such as Hurricane Sandy, the nationwide drought of 2012, and the rise of hydraulic fracking have drawn attention to the growing scarcity of adequate water resources for energy generation. This Water-Energy Nexus is becoming more exacerbated by other longer-term trends, including U.S. population growth and shifting participation patters due to ongoing climate change. Joint action across industry stakeholders is needed in order to drive water-energy efficiencies and optimize the nexus for future generations.
