Working Session #4, Reducing Conflicts at the Water‐Energy Interface, focused on addressing
challenges at the intersection of water and energy. The discussion was specifically focused on
achieving the following objectives:
• Identify opportunities to address challenges that exist at the intersections of U.S.
freshwater systems and the energy sector, including:
o Reducing energy needs and carbon footprint associated with all sectors of water
use, treatment, and delivery; and
o Minimizing conflicts between water demand from energy generation and water
needed for other human and ecological purposes.
• Identify priority solutions that need to be included in a national agenda to achieve more
resilient freshwater systems while also providing energy to the American public and
economy.
