The Water-Energy Nexus in the Southeastern United States: A Baseline Assessment of Regional Reliability and Documentation of Abatement Solutions Public
Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
Increasing energy demand and unreliable water supplies due to drought threaten thermoelectric power generation, which required large amounts of water for cooling, in the Southeastern U.S. Our IQP addressed this issue by gathering data on power plants in the region, as well as interviewing plant experts, meeting with DOE water-energy experts, and reviewing water-energy reports to gain a broad perspective of the issues and potential solutions to the problem in order to provide recommendations to mitigate the problem.
