Emerging Scientific and Engineering Opportunities within the Water-Energy Nexus

Dec 20, 2017

Water and energy are resources that are linked, because generating energy requires water, often in large quantities, and energy is needed for pumping, treatment, and distribution of water and for collection, treatment, and discharge of wastewater. This interrelationship is often referred to as the water-energy nexus. The Molecular Foundry’s Jeff Urban details the challenges and opportunities in the WEN in a recent issue of Joule.
