Energy Analysis // Energy-Water Nexus
Water is required to produce energy. Energy is required to pump, treat, and transport water. This analysis by the US National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) is investigating the inextricably linked sectors of water and energy.
The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) is exploring a unique system-of-systems concept to energy systems integration (ESI). This approach considers the relationships among electricity, thermal, and fuel systems and data and information networks to ensure optimal integration and interoperability across the entire energy system spectrum. This ESI framework can be adapted to evaluate energy and water system interactions.
