Energy Water Nexus Technical Conference // Driving Savings in Manufacturing

The largest category for water consumption in the US is electric power generation. Similarly, the largest demand for electricity is water extraction and distribution. This strong interdependence drives great opportunity in the Energy-Water Nexus (EWN) to impact both energy and water consumption.

he fourth and most recent Midwest Energy Research Consortium Strategic Roadmap was completed in early 2017 in conjunction with The Water Council. The report and subsequent Working Group seek to identify specific EWN applications, benefits, target markets, industry categories, technologies and products, and active companies within the EWN market space.

Topics

  • The Policy Context of the Energy Water Nexus in Manufacturing
  • Energy and water savings created by membrane and AC drive technology in the manufacturing process and the barriers to wide-adoption
  • Fostering an Energy Water Nexus focus within a company: Case Studies.

Conference // Water Storage and Hydropower Development for Africa

The connection of energy and water is most obvious in electricity generation through hydropower. Plus dams have an important impact on the environemtn, on water availability upstream and downstream, and thus on food production and food security. The AFRICA 2019 conference will bring together industry professionals in Namibia, a country with a variety of dams, to discuss water and energy issues relevant to Africa.

Session at EGU General Assembly 2019 // Hydropower and Other Renewable Energy Sources: Integration and Planning amid the Water-Energy Nexus

The transition to a low-carbon economy and programs of nuclear power phase-out will require the development of innovative methods to integrate renewable sources of energy while minimizing the additional pressure on closely connected ecosystems. This session at the EGU General Assembly 2019 solicits contributions that describe, characterize, or model distributed renewable energy sources at different spatial and temporal scales that are relevant for the electricity systems, their interactions,...
