It takes a lot of water to create energy. Water is required to generate hydropower, cool electric power plants, and also during fuel refining, extraction and production. A shortage of water can constrain energy production since 143 billion gallons of freshwater is consumed by power plants in the United States every day.
Water is not only vital for energy production but also imperative for irrigation and public water supplies. The call of the hour is an integrated water and energy policy, planning and management to encourage sustainability, conservation and innovation.
In this informative and enlightening session, Kevin L.

Also, he will walk you through the viable options and paths for the future.
