The water and energy sectors are natural partners: each depends on the other to reliably and economically achieve their respective missions. Numerous studies indicate that considerable incremental resource, economic, and environmental benefits can be achieved through integrated management of water and energy resources.
Despite high levels of interest and commitment from both sectors, decades of single resource optimization have hindered progress. Ultimately, maximizing the joint benefits of water and energy will require new policy and regulatory frameworks that enable optimizing investments across both resources. New metrics and tools will also be needed to enable evaluating multiple value streams from cross-cutting programs.
