One of three case studies looking at the impact that growing water demands and water-hungry fossil energy production will have on Nevada's future water supply.

The first of a series of three case studies, this report on water and energy in Nevada looks at the impact that growing water demands and water-hungry fossil energy production will have on Nevada’s future water supply. This scenario is contrasted against a future where water and energy efficiency practices are implemented and renewable energy is used to meet new energy demands. While the un-sustainability of Nevada’s “business as usual” approach to meeting Nevada’s energy and water demands is no surprise, the urgency necessary to shift away from this unsustainable path is.
