Solar Power Is A Huge Water Saver (World Water Day Infographic)

Solar Power Is A Huge Water Saver (World Water Day Infographic) | Energy & Climate Insight | Scoop.it

Every year since 1993, the community of nations has focused on the importance of fresh water and advocated for the sustainable management of freshwater resources. Severe droughts experienced recently in places like the American West, the Horn of Africa, Russia, China, and Australia have highlighted the fact that humans are rapidly using up the world's water supplies—and when they’re gone, they’re gone. We are spending one of our most vital resources in greater volumes every day.

One Block Off The Grid recently developed an infographic to illustrate how energy production depends on water. It shows water use by four of the most common energy sources: coal, nuclear, oil and gas, and solar. Solar comes out on top big time.

Russell Roberts's curator insight, May 2, 10:17 AM

Interesting infographic from Lauren Moss.  This graphic makes a strong case for solar power. It's about time Hawaii integrated more solar power into the grid.  With the adoption of "smart meters" and better grid management, we can lessen our dependence on imported oil for power generation.  Aloha, Russ.
