Today is world water day. We've written quite a number of posts on different ways water is connected to cleantech and clean energy. Rather than write a whole new post on one or two aspects of this, I've decided to do a compilation piece. The following are articles on CleanTechnica (and a few from our sister site Planetsave) on some of the connections between cleantech and water
