Strategies to save water and energy addressed at conference

The U.S. DOE and the Colorado Governor's Office of Energy Management and Conservation will co-host a conference on saving water and energy.

DENVER, July 7, 2003 -- The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the Colorado Governor's Office of Energy Management and Conservation (OEMC) announce "Saving Water: Smart Strategies to Improve the Bottom Line for Business, Industry and Municipalities."

The conference is August 14, 2003, at the Sheraton Denver West Hotel in Lakewood and is targeted to business, industry, and municipal water users and providers.

Colorado businesses, industries, and municipalities have felt the widespread effects of the recent water crisis. Although the immediate water crisis is under control, now is the time to meet future water and current energy challenges, especially with the shortage in supply of natural gas.

Improvements to water operations also lower overall energy usage. With the rising prices of natural gas, efficient water strategies will be vital to controlling energy costs and for the future of Colorado industry.

Attendees will learn solutions to address short and long term water and energy management issues. Speakers include local and national experts who will discuss analytical tools to improve water operations. Presentations are based on three educational tracks: Optimizing Water and Energy Using Systems; Securing Program Assistance/ Financing Alternatives; and Using Innovative Technologies to Save Water.

Saving Water is unique in that it brings together representatives from private and public sector organizations, including financial institutions, technical services firms and utility companies to provide attendees with detailed assistance for implementing the most effective water saving solutions.
