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:

DutchDubai // The Interconnection of Water, Energy and Food presented at the Dutch Pavilion at the Expo 2020 in Dubai, UAE

The Dutch pavilion in the World Expo, hosted by Dubai in the United Arab Emirates in 2020, will focus on the interconnection of water, energy and food. As the second-largest exporter of agricultural products in the world, the Netherlands wants to support collaboration as well as minimising the footprint of our interactive ecosystem by building the pavilion with local resources and locally rented building materials.
