Tree and urban landscapes provide an opportunity for every citizen to contribute to climate resilience through informed plant selection and sustainable management practices. The University of Arizona Campus Arboretum was established to guide science-based urban tree stewardship and to advance conservation best practices for campus and communities throughout the state.
A New Paradigm: Electric Utilities Investing In Water Conservation
Lon W. House, Ph.D, Water and Energy Consulting
The energy embedded in water may be a new source of energy savings for electric utilities. California has embarked on a program to assess energy savings associated with electric utilities investing in water conservation and develop water savings programs as part of utility energy efficiency portfolios. This presentation will discuss the status of these efforts, lesson learned, and provide some observations and recommendations on developing similar efforts elsewhere.
