Energy-Water Nexus | Energy Analysis

Water is required to produce energy. Energy is required to pump, treat, and transport water. The energy-water nexus examines the interactions between these two inextricably linked sectors. Source: U.S. Department of Energy, 2006 NREL helps policymakers, researchers, and investors understand and evaluate energy choices within this complex web of connections between energy and water. NREL's analysis, datasets, and advanced integrated modeling capabilities help illuminate the connections between energy, environment, economy, security, and quality of life. NREL is exploring a unique system-of-systems concept to energy systems integration (ESI). This approach considers the relationships among electricity, thermal, and fuel systems and data and information networks to ensure optimal integration and interoperability across the entire energy system spectrum. This ESI framework can...
