Water and energy are tightly interlinked. Almost all forms of energy production require large volumes of water, often with significant local watershed impacts. In turn, moving, treating, and managing water requires energy. Our water-energy nexus research is divided into two main areas:
- Water conservation and efficiency as a critical path to realizing future energy savings (primarily at the local level); and
- Daylighting how addressing underlying governance issues can promote sustainable energy development and water use within the B.C. and broader Canadian context.
