ENERGY & WATER INSTITUTE
Energy and Water. The mere mention of those words ignites intense passion and even conflict around the world. That is especially true in the western portions of North America where an abundance of energy potential and ever-scarce water resources meet daily with population growth, pressure on habitat and the realities of climate change.
The Colorado Energy & Water Institute was founded in 2017 to bring together a diverse community of North American industry, policy, nonprofit and academic leaders in an intentionally intimate setting to engage in a meaningful conversation about our energy and water future. With the foundation of our successful inaugural event in 2017, the Western Energy & Water Forum, CEWI has expanded to offer additional events and seminars to provide participants an opportunity to add to the dialogue, engage with one another and experience Colorado.
To allow for the most substantive and productive dialogue among participants, the Western Energy & Water Forum is closed to the general public and to the press.
