Building a Resilient, Smart & Sustainable City // The Energy-Water Nexus

By Cleantech San Diego, Itron, and Cisco. Energy and water are the world’s two most critical resources, yet their vital interconnections and vulnerabilities are less often recognized. Smart, resilient cities in the San Diego region and beyond are tackling these connection points head on.

The organisers invite you to join the conversation with a gathering of national thought leaders and distinguished guests as they discuss the issues and opportunities surrounding the nexus of energy and water management, both across the country and in the San Diego region. The event will feature a keynote speaker followed by insights from a panel of local and national industry experts.

Featured speakers

  • Congressman Scott Peters, U.S. House of Representatives (CA-52)
  • TJ Costello, Director Smart Cities & IoT - Americas, Cisco

Conferences, Forums and Symposiums

IAMG2019 // 20th Annual Conference of the International Association for Mathematical Geosciences

The conference will cover the usual topics in geo-mathematics, geostatistics, and geomodeling but in particular will bring to fore geomodeling issues at the intersection of food, water, and energy. The challenge of meeting the increased demand for food, water, and energy and the resultant stress on our geo-sphere is broadly accepted as one of the major scientific challenges facing mankind. The feedback processes intrinsic to this tri-partite cycle are best-studied using sophisticated...

Stockholm World Water Week (SWWW) 2019

Stockholm World Water Week 2019

In 2019, World Water Week will explore an inclusive approach. This week’s theme: “Water and society – including all” is recognizing that not everybody is impacted in the same way by too little, too much or too dirty water. Less obvious than last year, the Nexus approach will remain at the heart of the water debate, especially through the seminar topic "Addressing migration through regional integration and water security for all", that explicitly connects water, energy and food security as the...

Migration

SWWW 2019 Seminar // Addressing Migration through Regional Integration and Water Security for All

Regional economic integration can foster transboundary water management as well as energy and food security. It also attracts investments that address infrastructure deficits, accelerates participation in global and regional value chains, and stimulates economic growth. All are important entry points for sustainable development. However, environmental and social co-benefits are typically not as well quantified as economic growth.
