Water & Energy in Colorado: Emulsifying Two Great Challenges in Four Parts
Coloradans are faced with limited and perhaps dwindling water supplies at the same time we strive to produce more energy in an environmentally sensitive manner. These critical challenges are fundamentally science and engineering problems that interface with social and communication components. Hydrological knowledge can frame technical solutions for water such as aquifer storage and recovery, enhanced recycling, and more efficient use. Engineering solutions can draw on innovative energy technologies that provide economically optimized blends of environmentally sensitive power-generating technologies. Together, informed decisions can result in a better Colorado for everyone.


The Colorado Scientific Society, in collaboration with the Center of the American West, is sponsoring a symposium focused on the science and cultural issues at the interface between water and energy in Colorado. This symposium will bring together representatives from water providers and the energy industry to highlight some of the most important issues facing our community today and in the future. We will hold a four-day remote event hosted by the Denver Museum of Nature & Science. Each hour-and-a-half session will feature 4 to 5 speakers engaged in discussions coordinated by Dr. Patricia Limerick as moderator. The emphasis will center on science that frames these topics, but also will incorporate cultural contexts and identify common ground and collaborative opportunities.

The four sessions will focus on the following topics:

Part I: RESOURCE PROVIDERS: Tuesday, August 11, 2020 (10 –11:30 am)

PART II: USER COMMUNITY PERSPECTIVES: Thursday, August 13, 2020 (10 –11:30 am)

PART III: TECHNOLOGY ADDRESSING CURRENT CHALLENGES: Tuesday, August 18, 2020 (10 –11:30 am)

PART IV: FUTURE PATHWAYS; Thursday, August 20, 2020 (10 –11:30 am)
