Adequate water and energy are critical to the continued economic security of the United States. The relationship between energy and water is complex, and the scientific community is increasingly recognizing the importance of better understanding the linkages between these two resource domains. Federal agencies, the private sector, and academic researchers have noted that the lack of data on energy-water linkages remains a key limitation to fully characterizing the scope of this issue.
Beginning in June 2013, the Roundtable on Science and Technology for Sustainability in collaboration with the Board on Energy and Environmental Systems and the Water Science and Technology Board contributed to the emerging dialogue on the energy-water nexus by holding four related meetings. These meetings were designed to examine emerging technical and policy mechanisms to address energy-water issues. This report summarizes the presentations and discussions from these meetings.
