July 28, 2021

How can the energy-water nexus inform smarter cities? Dr. Ashlynn S. Stillwell. discussed how her team considers water and energy connections at both the city scale and the residential scale, demonstrating the value of data for benchmarking, risk analysis, and conservation and efficiency investments. Their results quantify the energy required for U.S. water and wastewater utilities and estimate the potential resource savings from efficiency measures through disaggregation of residential water use.
