Water and energy are strongly linked and mutually dependent. We need water to generate energy – and we need energy to supply, use, and treat drinking water and wastewater. On the energy side of the equation, our reliance on fossil fuels requires us to use enormous amounts of water for energy production. If we fail to transition to a clean energy economy, water used for energy production is predicted to increase from 66 billion cubic meters (bcm) today to 135 bcm annually by 2035. Join the MEF to explore the water/energy nexus.
