Energy and water are intrinsically intertwined. The management of water from purification to final treatment, for return to the environment, uses 2-3% of all electricity generated, while the production of electricity utilizes 25 gallons of water for each kWh generated. Likewise, production of natural gas is water intensive, and natural gas-fired engines are used to generate electricity, or are used directly for pumping. Learn the opportunities for environmental and economic benefits of the water-energy nexus from industry leaders. Hear firsthand the steps that are being taken and leave with an understanding of what is next.
