Water is required to produce energy. Energy is required to pump, treat, and transport water. The energy-water nexus examines the interactions between these two inextricably linked sectors, identifying areas of vulnerabilities and synergies. The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) holistically addresses the energy-water nexus from a variety of different angles. NREL evaluates energy-water tradeoffs via four interconnected pathways: energy-water modeling and analysis, technology development and demonstration, energy systems integration, and energy-water systems solutions. Given the scarcity of water in the Western US, understanding consequences of decisions affecting water and energy are highly critical.


Jordan Macknick is an Energy Engineer and Environmental Analyst with the Strategic Energy Analysis Center at NREL. Jordan leads NREL analysis research on the interface of energy, water, and land issues in policy planning. In addition, his research addresses energy deployment in developing countries, technology characterizations, and global energy and carbon systems. Jordan holds a Masters in Environmental Science from Yale University and degrees in Mathematics and Environmental Studies from Hamline University.
