Technology Convergence Resolving Water-Energy Challenges

Water and energy interdependence is a global concern, magnifying the need to resolve wide-ranging challenges associated with the water-energy nexus. Climate change, population growth, and lifestyle changes are major factors aggravating the water-energy crisis beyond the control of stakeholders. Increased shale gas explorations, biofuels production, hydraulic fracturing, and water trade have further exacerbated the water-energy challenge.

  • 1. D560-TI Technology Convergence Based on Recycle and Recovery Crucial to Address Water-Energy Challenges Research PREVIEW for Technology Convergence Resolving Water-Energy Challenges
  • 2. D560-TI 2 Key Findings 1 Climate change, population growth, and lifestyle changes are major factors that highly impact the water-energy nexus and can aggravate the water-energy challenge. Shale gas extraction in water- scarce regions is a major contributor to water-energy challenges. Water trade may change the extent of water-energy challenges of a particular region. 3 Six types of technology that contribute to solving the water-energy challenge have been identified– renewable energy (RE)-based desalination; technologies in hydraulic fracturing; technologies for thermal power plants; water efficiency, wastewater treatment and recovery; and energy efficiency. 2 Four regions that have critical water-energy challenges are the United States, Middle East, India, and China. Solutions to the water-energy challenge cannot be generalized and each region has technologies that are more suitable or applicable for the region. 4 Technologies addressing the water-energy nexus are based on 3 broad concepts, namely reduce; recycle and recovery; and zero-water/zero-energy. Most of the high-impact technologies are based on the Recycle and Recovery concept. 5 The study identifies that thermal power plants are the most important stakeholder in the water-energy challenge responsible to a major extent for the aggravation of the water-energy challenge.
  • 3. D560-TI 3 Key Findings (cont…) 7 RE-based desalination, which is the result of technology convergence, has the highest impact on the water-energy nexus industry and has the highest opportunity of being adopted, being applicable to 3 of the 4 critical regions analyzed, namely USA, Middle East, and China. 8 Energy efficiency technologies have seen greater adoption than water efficiency technologies, which are less developed than the former. 9 No single technology or concept can solve the water-energy challenge, and there is a requirement for an integrated, multi-dimensional and multi-disciplinary approach. Consequently, most of the high- impact technologies are convergence of technologies. 6 In general, water efficiency technologies have a higher impact on the water-energy challenge, since water scarcity has extensive influence on many industries and on agriculture.
