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 wildlife habitat and the realities of climate change.


The Colorado Energy & Water Institute (CEWI) was founded in 2017 to bring together senior policy, industry, nonprofit and academic leaders to advance substantive dialogue about our energy and water future.
