ICE Energy and Water Conference

Date: 3rd - 4th May 2017

Location: Westminster, London

Working together to respond to climate change

UNESCO recently asked if wastewater is the new black gold, the UK Guardian this week explored the idea of water as the heart of an alternative narrative on climate change, and Defra's upcoming abstraction reform is trying to return 75bn litres a year of it to the environment. 

Our use of water, and the challenges and opportunities it presents are changing.

ICE is looking to identify what this will look like, the technical and operational implications, and how industry and Government should shape their responses at a conference on May 3.
