Just Add Water: Energy, Climate & Food

Description:Progressively, people and corporations are starting to understand and feel the importance of water and the role it has in our daily lives. Major industries and economic production depend on reliable access to water. However, increased water consumption and uneven allocation of water resources present a daunting situation for business and society at large. Water, energy, climate, and food are inter-related, which magnifies the importance of water management. Leading companies recognize the risks and are actively relying on data and information to make smarter decisions. As major stakeholders in this equation, water utilities play an integral part in ensuring water availability and sustainability. This presentation discusses some of the challenges we face today related to water, energy, climate, and food and what stakeholders are doing about it. Case studies ranging from IBM to the City of Calgary will highlight how water utilities and corporations are working together and using real-time data and information to address these issues. In addition, the emerging importance of leading edge trends and technologies in smart meters and the Cloud will be discussed.
