Water Use in the US Electric Power Sector: Energy Systems Level Perspectives

Citation:

Dodder, R. Water Use in the US Electric Power Sector: Energy Systems Level Perspectives. Presented at World Energy Engineering Congress, Orlando, FL, September 29 - October 02, 2015.

Impact/Purpose:

The presentation is part of panel session on the Water-Energy Nexus at the World Energy Engineering Congress

Description:

This presentation reviews the water demands of long-range electricity scenarios. It addresses questions such as: What are the aggregate water requirements of the U.S. electric power sector? How could water requirements evolve under different long-range regional generation mixes? It also looks at research addressing the electricity generation water demand from a life cycle perspective, such as water use for the fuel cycle (natural gas, coal, uranium, etc.) and water use for the materials/equipment/manufacturing of new power plants.
