Historically, public policy and business practice have treated water and energy as separate resources, but they are inextricably linked. Water delivery and treatment systems and the energy production and distribution infrastructure are intertwined and interdependent. Unfortunately, our ability to measure, monitor, and manage this coupled water-energy system is underdeveloped. The Center for Water-Energy Efficiency (CWEE) at UC Davis seeks to address this gap and advance resource use efficiency through integrated water–energy management.
