Distributed generation has taken hold in the energy industry, in particular for renewable technology such as solar PV. Can the same concepts be applied to water? With power and water systems increasingly interdependent, join us as we discuss how designing infrastructure with distributed production and business models in mind can strengthen those bonds but also presents significant challenges. The panel will also explore how close we are to having the right technology, proactive regulatory thinking, and suitable financing  to push distributed networks forward as a viable alternative to centralized systems.
