Buildings and California’s Water-Energy Nexus

Presented by

Jeremy Sigmon, U.S. Green Building Council; Adrienne Johnson, Stanford University; Jennifer Rosser, Sierra Business Council

About this talk

How actively are California’s green buildings addressing water conservation and management? What can we do to catalyze an even greater focus on the state’s top environmental priority in these buildings? New research reveals insights from 1,300+ LEED-certified buildings in California and offers new approaches to leverage buildings as part of the solution to the current water crisis. Sierra Business Council's Water Energy Nexus Study analyzes the potential to increase energy and water savings by improving the operational efficiency of several small to intermediate sized, Sierra foothill water agencies/districts with a focus on minimizing water losses and improving pumping efficiency.
