Megan Anderson O'Reilly at the Amigos Bravos Strategic Planning Retreat, 2013
AMIGOS BRAVOS HIRES WATER/ENERGY NEXUS CONSULTANT
Amigos Bravos is delighted to welcome Megan Anderson O'Reilly to the Amigos Bravos team!
Megan will research and quantify, for Amigos Bravos, which energy sources have the biggest negative impact on New Mexico's water. She'll also be quantifying, to the extent possible, how much water individual industries appropriate, consume, and pollute.
In addition, Megan will research and quantify how much energy is used to manage and transport water in New Mexico. She'll then produce a report on New Mexico's water/energy nexus that details the quantity of water used in energy production and the amount of energy used in managing and transporting water.
With the above information, Megan and the Amigos Bravos staff will develop a set of "New Mexico Water/Energy Principals" to be used by Amigos Bravos when analyzing policy priorities, regulatory proposals, and municipal and industrial developments.
Megan and the Amigos Bravos Staff and Board of Directors will also develop a set of policy recommendations for implementing those Principals at the national, state, and local levels.
The water/energy nexus in New Mexico was at the top of the list of concerns voiced by members of the Amigos Bravos Advisory Council a year and a half ago, at Ghost Ranch, during the development of the current Amigos Bravos Five Year Strategic Plan.We are excited to be moving forward with that work, now.
Megan Anderson O'Reilly is an environmental lawyer whose past experience includes serving as Staff Attorney, for seven years, and Director of the Climate and Energy Program, for two years, for the Western Environmental Law Center.
