AESP Webinar: From Climate Transition to Market Transformation

Online Webinar
United States

Join us on October 21st, 2021, for the AESP Webinar: From Climate Transition to Market Transformation. Resource Innovations’ Kate Merson will be a panelist at this informative webinar.

The climate in the Western United States has changed to the point where it is no longer experiencing a drought – the term now is “aridification,” with an expectation that the climate will remain hotter and dryer than in recent history. This will require an unprecedented market transformation, with changes in water supply and use patterns in urban, rural, industrial and agricultural landscapes.

What role can AESP members play in this transformation? How do energy efficiency, electrification and distributed energy resources help not only mitigate these changes but also propel society forward?

After attending this Webinar, you will be able to:

  • Explain how energy efficiency, electrification, and DER technologies can reduce water demand.
  • Describe how alternative water supply technologies (e.g. potable reuse) may benefit from energy efficiency, electrification, and DER technologies.
  • Identify ways utilities can integrate water scarcity and resiliency into their existing and new programs.
