Water/Energy Nexus

  1. 1. The Water / Energy Nexus<br />Avoiding limits on our energy future<br />
  2. 2. The Water / Energy Nexus<br />Water use and availability will soon limit emerging opportunities for energy independence and economic development.<br />
  3. 3. The Water / Energy Nexus<br />Water use and availabilitywilllimit our energy choices without substantial efficiency improvements.<br />Shale Gas?<br /> 3 MM gal /well & quality concerns<br />Carbon sequestration? <br />25% greater water usage<br />Biofuels?<br />Doubling of water consumption for fuels<br />1 concentrating solar 2 combined cycle<br />
  4. 4. The Water / Energy Nexus<br />Provide water with consistent quantity and quality to avoid limiting our energy choices.<br />Facing challenges like too little water, too much water, & poor water quality<br />
