Public Private Co-operation: The Key for Water and Energy Management

This event was webcasted live - visit SIWI Media Hub for more viewing and sharing options.


In most countries the private sector is the largest consumer of both water and energy. Their support to energy and water efficiency initiatives is essential if policies are to work effectively and get implemented.


The 2030 Water Resources Group and the Global Green Growth Forum catalyse investments in water and energy by private sector partners, building multistakeholder platforms, public private partnerships and prioritising projects on the ground.


This seminar will demonstrate how utilities can produce more electricity while using less water, and how better irrigation means that more water can be supplied using less energy. The UK energy regulator Ofgem will explain how these activities can be agreed, managed and regulated. SIWI will demonstrate how to identify priority activities in the water and energy nexus to ensure that water savings are maximized, while being affordable. Panels will provide an opportunity for in-depth discussions of some of the most salient points, and discuss how their organisation’s activities can be scaled up to ensure future global green growth.
