You Won’t Want to Miss the Energy & Water Nexus Summit 2

The Energy and Water Nexus Summit 2
Thursday, September 12, 2013
9:00 am – 4:00 pm
The Aquarium of the Bay, Pier 39, San Francisco

A workshop exploring issues around water and energy policy, supply, pricing, reliability and development and how they impact our quality of life, economy, environment, trade, and the movement of goods.

Join a diverse and distinguished group of agency representatives,
elected officials, consultants, attorneys, engineers, environmentalists, businesspeople, water and energy scholars, scientists, and more at this all-day event. 

This is your chance to ask the tough questions and get perspectives from all sides of these important issues-

Desalination – Is it the future of water for California? Where is it being done? Is it environmentally and economically sound? How will it impact ocean health? How will it affect our communities?

Energy, Water, and California Agriculture – How does job creation and the agricultural economy of our state depend on a reliable source of energy and water? How is conservation being tackled? Is the status quo sustainable?

The Water Bond – Will it make it on the 2014 ballot? How will this affect the average Californian? Will the Bond affect business and the economy?

Water and Energy Development – What kinds of innovations are public and private companies coming up with to ensure a stable future for water and energy in California?
