Water and electricity are inextricably linked in what is often called the energy-water nexus. Yet little work has been done to address this work from an engineering systems perspective. Towards that end, William Lubega and Prof. Amro M. Farid have authored their second paper of the year on the topic. Entitled “An Engineering Systems Model for the Quantitative Analysis of the Energy-Water Nexus“, the work provides a first quantitative analysis of the interdependencies between the electricity, water, and wastewater systems.
The work will be presented at the Complex Systems Design & Management Conference to be held in Paris, France December 4-6, 2013. The CSD&M conference is the annual meeting point for both industrial & academic players working in industrial fields and dealing with large-scale complex systems.
