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.

Conferences, Forums and Symposiums

IAMG2019 // 20th Annual Conference of the International Association for Mathematical Geosciences

The conference will cover the usual topics in geo-mathematics, geostatistics, and geomodeling but in particular will bring to fore geomodeling issues at the intersection of food, water, and energy. The challenge of meeting the increased demand for food, water, and energy and the resultant stress on our geo-sphere is broadly accepted as one of the major scientific challenges facing mankind. The feedback processes intrinsic to this tri-partite cycle are best-studied using sophisticated...

Stockholm World Water Week (SWWW) 2019

Stockholm World Water Week 2019

In 2019, World Water Week will explore an inclusive approach. This week’s theme: “Water and society – including all” is recognizing that not everybody is impacted in the same way by too little, too much or too dirty water. Less obvious than last year, the Nexus approach will remain at the heart of the water debate, especially through the seminar topic "Addressing migration through regional integration and water security for all", that explicitly connects water, energy and food security as the...

Migration

SWWW 2019 Seminar // Addressing Migration through Regional Integration and Water Security for All

Regional economic integration can foster transboundary water management as well as energy and food security. It also attracts investments that address infrastructure deficits, accelerates participation in global and regional value chains, and stimulates economic growth. All are important entry points for sustainable development. However, environmental and social co-benefits are typically not as well quantified as economic growth.
