GC31E:
The Water-Energy Nexus: Data, Impacts, and Opportunities I Posters


Session ID#: 8425

Session Description:
Water and energy are undeniably interconnected – water is withdrawn and consumed in energy production and energy is required to extract, treat and distribute water and treat wastewater. These interdependencies are complicated by changes in climate, socioeconomics and technology. Meanwhile, energy and water systems are often developed, managed and regulated independently. Thus, a holistic understanding of water-energy interactions, synergies and tradeoffs is direly needed to effectively manage and devise sustainable water-energy policies. This session provides an open forum for discussions of the data, trends, impacts and opportunities of the water-energy nexus. We welcome interdisciplinary studies, including: a) water use for energy production; b) energy consumption for water use; c) broad impacts of water use for energy (e.g., drought, wastewater and thermal pollution); d) consequences of energy consumption for water use (e.g., greenhouse gas emissions, limiting economic growth); e) potential opportunities for sustainable use; and f) related policies, management and legislation.
