Nexus Webinar // Carbon Reduction and Energy Efficiency in the Water and Wastewater Sector

This webinar hosted by the Copenhagen Centre on Energy Efficiency presents a series of case studies by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) related to the water-energy nexus and the pathways to increase the rate of energy efficiency in the water sector.

The linkages between water and energy consumption are significant. To produce energy, water is needed and, likewise, the provision and treatment of water requires the consumption of energy, in particular of electricity (ca. 60%). Reports and analysis demonstrated that the water sector is becoming more energy-intensive, while the energy sector is increasing its water-intensity. In 2014, 120 Mtoe of energy was used in the water sector only, and the growing global water use suggests that the numbers will be higher in the next years. Therefore, the potential to improve the energy efficiency in these processes is remarkable and the water-energy nexus has started to be increasingly included in projects. The webinar, hosted by the Copenhagen Centre on Energy Efficiency, covers the following 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.
