Principles for an Energy/Water Future document available

May 8, 2012 | General RCAP News

EPA has drafted Principles for an Energy Water Future.  EPA encourages all stakeholders – including government, utilities, private companies and ratepayers – to consider these principles and incorporate them into their work.

The principles are familiar concepts: water and energy efficiency, a water-wise energy sector, an energy-wise water sector, viewing wastewater as a source of renewable resources, integrated resource planning, and maximizing social benefits.  EPA hopes that having them listed in one document that touches upon all aspects of energy and water's interdependency will help to further raise awareness, stimulate discussion and advance progress.
