Ten Novel and Innovative Examples of Water Energy Nexus



 Managing water in energy production and optimizing the use of energy for clean water production is known as Water-Energy Nexus and in recent years one of the most popular topics of research. This nexus is deemed as the solution to the future scarcity problems due to change in climatic pattern and rapid urbanization and their lust for advanced technology.

The uncontrolled extraction of natural resources, conversion of land use and deforestation along with the burgeoning population has created a human induces warming in the atmosphere which has resulted in climate change. Again for the same reason, the two most used natural resources in the Earth is now under stress and most of the population doesn't have a steady supply of these two essential resources. The result is so-called both natural and man-made disaster which has created a question on the sustainability of the future mankind.

The nexus is deemed as one of the solutions to minimize the stress by using both water technology in energy and vice versa optimally as well as intelligently. The presentation below depicts ten innovative and novel examples of water-energy nexus which may inspire the budding researchers of both water and energy to produce a smart solution to this global catastrophe.

  Brackish Water Can be Used as Power Plant Coolant According to NETL, using brackish water to cool power plants can reduce freshwater consumption by 94% to 100%. Brackish water is water that is not suitable for drinking or irrigation because it contains between 1,000 and 35,000 parts per million of dissolved solids. The study's findings were published online by Nature Portfolio and are available here.  Find more Management of Water and Energy Nexus is crucial for the future of India  India is one of the world's most water-stressed countries, with only 4% of the world's water supply but 18% of the population. And, in recent years, India's rapid economic rise has only increased demand for both energy and water, putting these interconnected resources under increasing stress and making the nexus between them crucial for the country's energy security and transition goals. Agriculture consumes 80% of India's water, but water is also essential to the country's ene
