Total Energy USA
November 20, 2012
Houston, Texas John Finisdore, consultant with Irbaris LLP, will be moderating an informative panel on the water-energy nexus at Total Energy USA, a groundbreaking conference & exposition taking place in Houston, Texas November 27th through the 29th.
The session, Water: Providing a Consistent Water Source for Electricity, will address current challenges of increasing water scarcity on electricity provision. Almost half of all freshwater use in the US is for electricity production and demand for water and electricity is growing. Further complicating analysis is the growing demand for electricity for water extraction, transport, and cleaning. This means that demand changes in one sector impact the other sector.
“The session will bring experts in different areas of the water-energy nexus together to share their technical and policy oriented experiences. It must be understood that energy and water can no longer be thought of independently from one another. Achieving efficiency in one sector can lead to inefficiencies in another. Understanding the connections between these sectors is critical,” says Finisdore.
Water: Providing a Consistent Water Source for Electricity will be held on Wednesday, November 28th at 2:00 pm in Room 320C.
