Welcome to Water Energy Strategy
Water and Energy: Looking Beyond the Shales
A strategic perspective on water sourcing and management for industry, energy and growth
Upstream energy has dominated the headlines due to the emergence of North America as a continental energy superpower. However, we must be able to see beyond the gas revolution if we are to build a detailed strategic picture of the energy / water nexus. As a revival of the US manufacturing base compounds already spiking industrial water withdrawals in a period of persistent drought, difficult questions must be asked about how we price, manage and develop our water assets in Texas and beyond if they are not to become a drag on economic growth.
Co-chaired by Amanda Brock of Water Standard and Clay Landry of WestWater Research, Water & Energy 2013: Looking Beyond the Shales will build upon last year’s highly successful upstream event. It will bring together leaders from business, academia and government to debate the whole water cycle: sourcing, treatment, use and reuse of water in the context of downstream petrochemicals, thermo power generation, and heavy industry.
