Assessment of the state of knowledge related to science, integrated observations, and governance in the W-E-F Nexus, Karlsruhe/Germany

Workshop // Assessment of the state of knowledge related to science, integrated observations, and governance in the W-E-F Nexus, Karlsruhe/Germany

to be held at Fraunhofer IOSB in Karlsruhe, November 23— 25, 2015.

Participation is by invitation only as places are limited.

You are welcome to express your interest via the "register" button on the workshop website; the organisers will ensure that you are kept informed and will confirm your participation in due time.

The goals of the Workshop are:

1. Identify gaps in our understanding and our ability to resolve W-E-F Nexus issues.

2. Explore

a) decision making at the operational level and

b) policy development at national and international levels in the Nexus with an emphasis on integrated management of energy and water, the links to bioenergy, the bio-economy and land management and the role of the public and private sectors.

3. Identify observation types and essential variables, datasets, software platforms and tools (e.g. for modelling and analysis at different spatiotemporal scales, change of scale, handling of Big Data), indicators for decision making,

4. Identify pilot projects, research activities, and program strategies whereby Earth observations can be effectively integrated into decision-making within emerging W-E-F Nexus collaborations.

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,...
