US-Australian Dialogue on the Water-Energy Nexus

The aim of the Energy-Water Nexus Dialogue is to explore the link between energy consumption and water use. Australia, the driest inhabited continent on earth, and California have large populations located significant distances from natural water sources. Moving this water from the source to the people requires vast amounts of energy. The dialogue will explore ways Australia and the US can work together to understand and reduce the energy footprint associated with water consumption while meeting the ever growing need for this precious resource. Better ways of managing the nexus will also be explored during the dialogue, with sessions focussed on turning information into action, the significance of the nexus for cities of the future, and opportunities for better decision making in both business and government.
