Middle East: GE unveils white paper on water resource management

At the World Future Energy Summit 2016, General Electric (GE) unveiled a white paper on the opportunities and risks associated with the energy and water landscape of the Middle East and North Africa region. GE has partnered with the World Resources Institute to prepare the report titled Water, Energy, Risks & Rewards – Challenges Opportunities and Ideas for Innovation at the Water-Energy Nexus, which specifically addresses the questions of ‘Where are companies facing risks at the nexus of water and energy resource challenges?’ and ‘What are the opportunities for companies to reduce exposure to these risks and meet customers’ needs in tomorrow’s markets?’. It also aims to drive a culture of localised research through its analysis of the challenges, opportunities and ideas on promoting water and energy use efficiency.
