Zpryme and SEW to host 4th Annual WE3 Summit


Los Angeles, CA (August 18 2022) – Zpryme, an Austin-based energy and technology research company, announced today that it is continuing its partnership with SEW, the world’s leading provider of digital customer and workforce experience platform for utilities, to host the 4th annual WE3 Summit on November 9-10, 2022. The event will focus on the Water (W) and Energy (E) Nexus with the three (3) goals of Engaging, Empowering, and Educating the people who will tackle the biggest issues facing the future of these essential resources.

This year’s WE3 Summit will provide a forum to drive the solutions and dialogue around creating an economically accessible and environmentally sustainable water-energy nexus that is needed for billions of people worldwide today and tomorrow. The summit will feature conversations around the important themes of eMobility, Net Zero, ESG, decarbonization, Customer Empowerment, and Innovation.

“Providing safe, reliable, and affordable water and energy sustainably is one of the most fundamental challenges facing our society today,” said Jason Rodriguez, CEO of Zpryme. “This challenge doesn’t look the same in every country, region, state, and even city, but whichever the context, the issues surrounding the water-energy nexus must be addressed in the most humanitarian way.”

Creating an economically accessible and environmentally sustainable water-energy system is possible if the global community can marshal an effective collective response.

The WE3 Summit will focus on the creation of this response through education, engagement, and empowerment. Speakers will include government officials, utility executives, industry-leading tech giants, financial experts, and customer advocates. Among others, the event will feature:

Paul Lau, CEO & GM, SMUD
Martin Adams, GM, LADWP
Brian Bentz, CEO & President, Alectra
Lia Cao, Global Head of Digital Payment, JP Morgan Chase
Lincoln Bleveans, Executive Director - Sustainability & Energy Management, Stanford University

“We have already seen the impact WE3 Summit can have on people and communities around the world,” states Deepak Garg, CEO and Founder of SEW. “By focusing on solutions, we can transform to create a more sustainable water-energy nexus. Communities across the world lack access to vital resources such as water and electricity. By educating, engaging, and empowering people and redefining the manner in which they manage these essential resources, we can start meeting these challenges today.”
