  • Water and energy shortages have motivated the development
    and deployment of a diverse suite of technologies to
    support our growth beyond the traditional limitations of natural
    resources. These technologies are diverse not only with respect
    to method and use, but also in the anticipated consequences of
    their operation. Our ability to desalinate billions of gallons of
    seawater daily to satisfy a global water demand that exceeds
    accessible freshwater resources can be deemed a technological
    triumph. However, we also recognize that long-term solutions to
    energy and water shortages cannot rely on provision of one
    through intense consumption of the other; the vast amount of
    energy used daily in desalination for potable water production
    must also be conserved.
