Frank Loge, Ph.D., P.E., Director, UC Davis Center for Water-Energy Efficiency | Professor, UC Davis


Frank Loge headshotAWE is pleased to announce that at its annual member meeting and reception in Las Vegas on Tuesday, October 2, 2018 the featured speaker will be Dr. Frank Loge, Director of the UC Davis Center for Water-Energy Efficiency.

Frank’s talk entitled Water and Energy and Water in Wine: Identifying Policy Solutions for Improving Water Efficiency in California, will address two key areas of his research: how much energy has been saved in California with water conservation programs (spoiler alert: more than was funded in energy efficiency programs!); and also how water and wine make for a very interesting water efficiency story.

Come join us at this year’s annual member meeting and reception. Held as part of the annual WaterSmart Innovations Conference and Exposition in Las Vegas, all AWE members and prospective members are welcome to attend. The meeting and reception takes place Tuesday, October 2, 2018 from 5:00–7:30 p.m. in Sonoma C Room at the South Point Hotel and Conference Center. Come and mingle. We hope to see you there.

AWE caps its full day of meetings with the Annual AWE Groundhog Days Music Night - featuring live performances from water efficiency's finest (and bravest) musicians and vocalists. Music Night closes the AWE annual meeting at WSI. This year marks the 5th edition of the Music Night, and interested singers and musicians (bring your own, or use one of our guitars) can contact Peter Mayer to sign up.
