Energy / Water Nexus
Clean and reliable water will continue to have a profound impact on the development of domestic energy sources and greenhouse gas emissions in the 21st Century – and vice versa. Two of the country’s most important physical resources, energy and water, must be used wisely and efficiently, particularly in the context of climate change and clean air policy. We will need to connect the dots, drops, and watts to support technological, fiscal and institutional innovation. Resource recovery, including the capture and reuse of nutrients, is particularly promising.
