All Electric Society (AES) and the Water Sector
The greatest challenges facing humanity – climate change and sustainable development – can be met from a technical perspective by the All Electric Society. AES is a world in which affordable electrical energy generated from renewable sources is available on a virtually unlimited basis as the main form of energy. However, AES is more than just decarbonization and the reduction of greenhouse gases. It also involves energy conservation through increased efficiency, and energy recovery/production to reduce operating costs and enhance asset management. The key to realizing this world is the comprehensive electrification, networking, and automation of all sectors of the economy and infrastructure to provide a cleaner, healthier, and more prosperous future for all. This presentation will introduce the goals and tenants of AES that provide a roadmap for building the resilience and sustainable water infrastructure of the future.
