IN019:
Data and Tools for Knowledge Discovery around the Energy-Water Nexus





Session ID#: 23772

Session Description:
Energy and water generation and delivery systems are inherently interconnected and are directly influenced by human activity and economic growth. Environmental, socioeconomic, and demographic scenarios informed by diverse datasets can lead to understanding of energy and water system vulnerabilities. This understanding can in turn inform new technology solutions as well as infrastructure planning decisions. Through case studies and innovative uses of data, algorithms, and visualization, this session will explore identification of future stress scenarios and insights into complex interdependencies. From this session, we hope to identify common sets of data, tools, and principles that support the next generation of knowledge discovery and illuminate solutions for the energy-water nexus.
