Government & Regulatory Affairs
Coalition & Issue Management
With the support of U.S. water utility, finance, and infrastructure organizations, E&W launched a membership-based coalition to help meet our nation’s growing water infrastructure needs. The exchange is structured as a virtual and physical platform to share intelligence and insights to better leverage the use of private and public capital for water utilities while promoting innovation across the sector.
E&W’s professionals built off existing efforts to create a singular platform focusing on four key areas:
(1) Blending of public and private financing to undertake long-term financing in the water sector;
(2) Supporting design of sustainable and resilient water infrastructure to assure security, access, treatment and reuse of water;
(3) Encouraging technology and business model innovations to “leap frog” water system development;
(4) Fostering better regulatory and legal frameworks that will facilitate greater investment and engage the collective resources of finance, technology, and infrastructure in the water sector.
