Addressing the Energy-Water Nexus: A Blueprint for Action and Policy Agenda
The American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) and the Alliance for Water Efficiency (AWE) prepared this report to improve the collaboration between the energy and water communities for joint action and policy.
Though strategies to conserve energy and increase the efficiency of energy use have received attention in the last three decades, the energy and water segments have not looked at collaboration and coordination.
The ACEEE and AWE have secured a grant from the Turner Foundation to jointly establish a blueprint for the future for energy and water communities and develop a policy agenda to drive actions at the federal, state, local, and watershed levels.
The blueprint covers eight broad areas including several action strategies expecting collaboration among funding sources, advocates and nonprofit organisations, government agencies, trade bodies, energy and water utilities, consumer organisations, business, regulatory agencies, universities, national laboratories, policymakers and US Congress.
