The conflict between Russia and Ukraine (and the world) will have cascading effects on international energy markets, particularly those more heavily reliant on natural gas, let alone Russian natural gas. The water sector is at risk to energy markets, globally, and is now being compelled to adopt more energy efficient tools and solutions.
This episode, discusses what this conflict might mean for water & wastewater utilities going forward. Host, Reese Tisdale, is joined by Bluefield’s Keith Hays to discuss the potential impacts and changes going forward for water. Not only do they discuss EU constraints on natural gas supplies, they highlight border issues related to water and energy, such as South African power blackouts and Winter storms in Texas.
Key questions addressed:
- What does an energy crisis mean for water utilities and industries?
- Which countries are likely to be most affected?
- What can utilities do to insulate themselves from water / energy risks?
- Does anyone benefit?
