Understanding the Water-Energy Nexus // Integrated Water and Power System Modeling

The United States and the European Union (EU) are seeking to accelerate the transition to low-carbon energy systems, including power generation from variable solar and wind technologies. Following the signing of a collaboration arrangement between the JRC and the US Department of Energy earlier this year, a workshop is being organised at the JRC's facilities in Ispra on 28-29 September 2016.

The United States and the European Union (EU) are seeking to accelerate the transition to low-carbon energy systems, including power generation from variable solar and wind technologies.

Following the signing of a collaboration arrangement between the JRC and the US Department of Energy earlier this year, a workshop is being organised at the JRC's facilities in Ispra on 28-29 September 2016.

During the workshop, European and US scientists from academia, government and industry will address the need to understand the “flexibility adequacy” of power generation, and the provision of flexibility reserves at a time in history where variable wind and solar are growing rapidly in use. In particular, it will be discussed how best to use integrated water and power system modelling to have future grid stability.

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.
