The Energy-Water Nexus in Texas

This study seeks to quantify the energy-water relationship in Texas, specifically the relationship between electricity generation and water resources as it pertains to policy and society. We examined the water requirements for various types of electricity generating facilities, for typical systems both nationwide and in Texas. It also addresses the energy requirements of water supply and wastewater treatment systems, comparing national averages with Texas-specific values.

Publication // Putting Nature in the Nexus: Investing in Natural Infrastructure to Advance Water-Energy-Food Security

Nature is the unseen dimension of the nexus. With its functions integral to the three securities and their inter-dependence, nature is part of the infrastructure needed to manage the nexus and its resilience. Nature helps mediate the nexus links, by storing, moving, cleaning and buffering flows of water, making drought and flood less severe, and food and energy production more reliable. Without healthy ecosystems in well-functioning watersheds, the infrastructure built for irrigation, hydropower...
