There is a close connection, or nexus, between energy and water. It takes a significant amount of water to create energy.  Energy is also used in great quantities during the supply and treatment of waste water.

For the year 2011 in the United States electricity from fossil fuels and nuclear energy required 190 billion gallons of water a day accounting for 39% of all the freshwater withdrawals while 4% off all power generation was used for water supply and treatment.

Water and energy problems are connected to each other in such a way that, in spite of some partial and short-term success, partial responses are bound to fail in the long-term.

Water and energy policy, planning and management must be integrated to encourage conservation, motivate innovation and ensure sustainable use of water and energy.

Hear about how interconnection of water and energy and how these two resources will be intertwined forever.

I will cover questions such as:

  • What is the water energy nexus?
  • How is water used in energy production?
  • How is energy used in the production of water?
  • Water and energy in California connected?
  • How can water and energy be managed together going forward?
