Water to energy nexus: Implications of some efficient use measures in the urban cycle of water

Cristina Matos

Water resources are being, in the last decades, intensively explored and polluted in Europe, and it is predictable that in a few years, it will be reached extremely values of water stress. The development and the increasing demands of the population have also conducted to the rise of energy consumption. Water and energy are two basic features to existence and its current consumption is disturbing. Energy use associated with water management is unwell understood and have only partially been considered in water management and planning. Urban water cycle involves several steps and all of these steps involve energy. One of the ways to reduce the pressure in water supplies is to reuse wastewater and greywater. However the degree of treatment these resources need are reliant on the final end-use. The importance of a correct characterization of wastewater/greywater lies on the assessment of its possible direct reuse or, if it’s not possible, the correct delineation of the treatment system in order to get a viable, sustainable and cost-effective one...
