Water security at the energy crossroads

Water security at the energy crossroads / Edward Byers, Newcastle University. Global Water Forum, December 2012, 5 p. (Discussion Paper 1253)


The paper examines the possibility of decoupling water and energy demand.Highlighting that increasing water demand increases demand for often non-renewable energy, the paper draws attention to energy use for pumping, transport and treatment of water. Conversely also the paper emphasizes the evaporative losses of water used to cool thermoelectric power stations, underscoring increased water use by the energy sector. The paper calls for addressing the water-energy-food nexus in an integrated manner, saying it is a win-win-win opportunity. (© GWF)
