The Water-Energy Nexus

This video was premiered at the 2016 Cool Planet Award Ceremony on Tuesday, October 25, 2016. “Solving the Water-Energy GHG Puzzle” examines the intricate interconnection of water and energy. Having completed the WEG Guidance last year, TCR is now piloting this program in Southern California, looking towards expanding it into a national protocol.
