The objective of the Workshop on the Energy Water Nexus is to explore the most critical challenges, needs and opportunities associated with the relationship of energy and water. In particular, the workshop will examine cross-sector dependencies that introduce vulnerabilities to critical infrastructure and critical resources research that can support cross-cutting solutions that improve the relationship for both sectors simultaneously. The workshop will be organized by Mike Hightower (Sandia National Laboratories), Dr. Danny Reible (UT Austin), and Dr. Michael E. Webber (UT Austin).
