Last week, AWE kicked off our latest research study, “Evaluating Changes in Peak Demand and How That May Affect the Choice, Design, Management, and Evaluation of Demand Management Strategies,” in partnership with the Water Research Foundation and six participating utilities
As we celebrate Black History Month, Valentine's Day, and Social Justice Day this February, let us channel the spirit of love and justice toward creating a sustainable and equitable water future. AWE recognizes that water affordability is a social justice issue, which disproportionately affects marginalized communities. We are committed to helping our members advance heir water conservation and efficiency efforts through an equity lens.
This Intern will contribute to important research within the Outdoor Water Savings Research Initiative in collaboration with AWE’s Program Team. The Intern will conduct primary and secondary research, facilitate informational interviews, collect and organize data, and write reports for an AWE project exploring the best practices across residential landscape transformation and irrigation efficiency programs.
2024 promises to be an exciting and productive year for AWE and our members. While many faced challenges in 2023 including drought, contentious water negotiations, and new regulatory environments, there were also innovations and strides forward in the ways we can work together to make every drop of water count. AWE continued to have a critical role in helping to clarify needs, bring problem-solvers together and to evaluate and identify best practices.
