As GAO’s past work has shown, and other studies and specialists have confirmed, there are a number of key energy-water nexus issues that Congress and federal agencies need to consider when developing and implementing national policies for energy and water resources.
'Food, Water and Energy: Know the Nexus' explains how food, water and energy systems are connected, how and where these systems intersect, how they rely upon each other to function and how they can have a significant impact on each other.
How are food, water and energy connected? Find out in "Food, Water and Energy: Know the Nexus," a new paper that explains how and where these systems intersect, how they rely upon each other to function and how they can have a significant impact on each other.
Water and energy are linked; it takes water to make energy (electricity and transportation fuels) and it takes energy to move and treat water. When you save energy you also save water. These energy-saving tips will also lower your water footprint.
Oil industry giants have been pushing a wave of biofuel advertising, but the nature of such fuel is complex; just look at its many different "generations." Too often, this complexity mixed with the promise of clean, renewable biofuels descends into greenwashing.
