Just Add Water to Get More From Energy Efficiency Programs

California has ambitions for a clean energy future and must plan for water scarcity. According to a new study, the two efforts must be seen as one. Water and energy consumption are not always fully considered as two parts of the same issue, whether in building new power plants or implementing efficiency programs. It takes a lot of water to produce electricity from most of the generation sources used today. It also takes a lot of energy to pump, deliver and clean the water we use every day. Increasingly, the energy-water nexus cannot be ignored. A study from the California Energy Commission found that water efficiency improvements could save as much energy as some of the existing energy-efficiency programs in the state, but at about half the cost, according to a new report from the Pacific Institute. Another study from the Pacific Institute found that water conservation mea...
