Look How Much Water the Energy Sector Wastes

"The U.S. Department of Energy has turned its focus to thewater-energy nexusas the sectors start to see the impact of climate change.

In an effort to bring more integrated research across its programs, the DOE's Water-Energy Tech Team issued a new report this month, The Water-Energy Nexus: Challenges and Opportunities .

The findings are hardly novel. There are huge inefficiencies in how water is used and great regional variability. The Sankey diagram below shows the magnitude of water waste in the energy sector, particularly in thermoelectric power generation."
