Abstract

Achieving sustainable water-energy relationship is especially important for semi-arid regions. Water consumption due to electricity generation can reach up to 8.4% of the total water potential in the study area. Between 659 and 2851 m(3) of water is found to be consumed per GWh of electricity generated at cooling systems.
