Event IP3 second annual two-week intensive course on Demand Management In Water and Energy: Innovations to Improve Sector Efficiencies

The Institute for Public-Private Partnerships (IP3) is pleased to announce our second annual two-week intensive course on Demand Management In Water and Energy: Innovations to Improve Sector Efficiencies which will be held in Washington, DC from March 9 - 20, 2009.

Countries on every continent face the difficult challenge of meeting the growing demand for water and energy resources. As population grow and economic growth continues, greater stress is being placed on already strained water and energy resources. While "supply side" options (more resources and infrastructure to deliver services) may be possible, it is vital that decision-makers in the water and energy sectors understand the range of "demand side" options. Demand management, if implemented wisely, can reduce demand, improve efficiency, increase quality, and control costs. For every unit of water and energy saved, one less unit of energy or water, and the costs of providing such, is needed.

This course, Demand Management in Water and Energy: Innovations to Improve Sector Efficiencies, is designed to provide participants with a detailed understanding of the concepts, tools, options, and techniques of demand management and forecasting for the water and energy sectors. Participants will improve their understanding and capability in performing studies and forecasts and will learn policy, technical, and management techniques to improve efficiency in both sectors. Moreover, participants will be exposed to international best practices in demand management and forecasting through examples in the United States and in the global arena.
