I-West Workshop on Energy Water | June 14, 2022

A new group essentially addressing water and energy issues in the Inter Mountain West has scheduled a half-day workshop on energy transition and water needs in western states.  Many of the discussions will be around produced water and non-traditional water use to support energy transitions, including hydrogen.  The Consortium gave a presentations to this group on energy and water issues in the west in May, and especially New Mexico efforts on produced water and applications to energy applications like hydrogen.  We will be presenting a condensed version of that presentation at the workshop.

Consortium members might be interested in discussions of efforts in these areas by other western states.
