Water and Energy systems are intertwined. Producing one involves the consumption of the other. This relationship is often referred to as the Energy-Water Nexus, and ensuring that those resources are being used efficiently is an important aspect to increasing resilience.

The International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO Group) and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation Corporate Citizenship Center (USCCF) have designed the Energy-Water Nexus Toolkit: Resources and Best Practices for Using Energy and Water More Efficiently to help companies of all types make more informed decisions about how to approach these nexus projects, what types of projects to implement, and how to educate the entire staff and management of the importance of nexus resiliencies.

  • Overview of the Energy-Water Nexus
  • Practical solutions and new technologies
