Sept. 4, 2014

STOCKHOLM — The 2014 World Water Week organized by the Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI) features a theme of “Energy and Water.”

STOCKHOLM —The 2014 World Water Week, which began in Stockholm on Aug. 31 and will conclude on Sept. 5, featured a discussion urging energy and water communities to work together to face challenges and provide clean drinking water and energy to the world’s growing population, according to a press release.

“The challenges are immense,” said Stockholm International Water Institute Executive Director of World Water Week, Torgny Holmgren. "With the global demand for water projected to grow by 55 percent between 2000 and 2050 and electricity demand expected to increase by 50 percent in the next two decades, there is an urgent need for a closer relationship between the energy and water communities, if we are to provide solutions for all [people] to prosper.”

Collaboration between energy and water communities has been discussed throughout the 2014 World Water Week, which features over 100 seminars, workshops and events, noted the release.
