With moderator Adam Aston, Senior Writer,

Join Solar One and the NYC Accelerator for a Clean and Renewable Economy (NYC ACRE) at Polytechnic Institute of New York University for "The Energy-Water Nexus", their event for Climate Week NYC 2011. The fourth event of Solar One's and NYC ACRE's discussion series and online forum Clean Energy Connections, The Energy-Water Nexus will bring together policy thinkers, industry leaders, and innovators to engage on how to responsibly maintain the relationship of energy and water for generations to come. 

Since the first steam engines of the Industrial Revolution, water has been intricately linked with how we generate and consume energy. Today, that relationship is more important than ever. Hydrofracking, concentrated solar power and nuclear energy are each increasing pressure and demand on our finite water resources. You are invited to join the discussion on how advanced management practices and technology innovations are ensuring that water resources are utilized responsibly in this rapidly changing energy age. 

Won't be in New York? Greentech Media is the media sponsor for this series and will host a free live web stream of this event at Questions for the panelists and comments can be submitted via Twitter @CleanECNYC,  #CleanNRGx, #ClimateWeekNYC.
