Water Exchange Speaker Series: The Water-Energy Nexus – Opportunities & Innovation
Join The Water Center at Penn for the next Water Exchange Speaker Series: The Water-Energy Nexus – Opportunities & Innovation
Water and wastewater utilities are large consumers of energy. At the same time, water and wastewater utilities are on the front lines of addressing the impacts of climate change, whether those impacts are in the form of flooding, drought, or severe storms. As providers of a fundamental infrastructure service, water and wastewater utilities must find ways to simultaneously reach net zero emissions while addressing climate change impacts.
This program will discuss how water and wastewater utilities are meeting these challenges through innovation, rethinking operations, bringing in new partners, and putting resiliency at the forefront of utility planning.
Come learn how water and wastewater utility leaders are creating a path to a net zero, resilient, and sustainable water future.
