Energizing Water Efficiency: California Energy Sector Experiences Can Advance State’s Water Conservation and Efficiency

Energizing Water Efficiency: California Energy Sector Experiences Can Advance State's Water Conservation and Efficiency

Oakland, Calif., December 19, 2013: "As a dry December accentuates the stress on California's limited water supplies, the success of the state's energy sector in implementing efficiency programs offers valuable lessons to the water sector. A new report from the Pacific Institute examines the rules, regulations, and policies that promote energy efficiency and finds models for water management in drivers like the energy sector's appliance standards, building codes, pricing policies, and utility-sponsored efficiency programs."

The water and energy sector are not only closely interlinked (and act accordingly), but can (should) learn from each other.
