The water for energy landscape is undergoing a transformation shaped by changing energy supplies and related water and energy management strategies across the municipal and industrial landscape. Bluefield’s approach to water for energy is expanding to include what most would consider the water-energy nexus, globally.
Water is uniquely positioned in the transition toward a lower carbon future. Not only is it a critical input for traditional thermal power generation, oil & gas exploration, and hydropower, it is fundamental in the deployment of emerging renewables solutions like green hydrogen. At the same time, water & wastewater utility services contribute to carbon emissions, thereby necessitating greater focus on their own unique footprints. It has been estimated that water utilities account for 2% of carbon emissions, globally.
