Energy and water systems are interdependent.
We cannot assume the future is like the past in terms of climate, technology, and the evolving decision landscape.
Water scarcity, variability, and uncertainty are becoming more prominent, potentially leading to vulnerabilities of the U.S. energy system.
It is time for a more integrated approach to address the challenges and opportunities of the water-energy nexus.
DOE has strong expertise in technology, modeling, analysis, and data that can contribute to understanding the issues and solutions across the entire nexus.
Collaboration with DOE’s many current and potential partners is crucial.
