"Research on the interaction of energy-water nexus considering spatial heterogeneity "
by Xia, Yan

The degradation of water resources and the depletion of non-renewable energy have made it increasingly challenging to meet those demand, in the meantime, climate change has further exacerbated the shortage of regional water resources. The acquisition and production capacity of water, energy and land resources varies from region to region and its production system. Therefore, regional differences of water resources have become serious problem, especially for water shortage areas. Therefore, based on the regional collaborative optimization for energy and water resources in in China, building the regional energy/water interaction impact assessment model is significant for our government to guide the regional comprehensive management and promote the sustainable development for resources. Thus, constructing a new interregional research framework for energy-water network to explore the interaction of energy-water nexus and its accounting system has important and urgent practical significance in solving the key problem for sustainable development. We found that greater awareness among policy makers at both the provincial and national levels of these linkages could lead to improved coordination between provinces, especially those that are closely linked. This could help encourage improved cooperation between provinces in the pursuit of national energy policy priorities. For example, by highlighting the supply chain linkages in this way, investment from the more developed industrial and efficient coastal areas could be encouraged towards the less developed energy intense interior. This may also assist with broader policy objectives to improve infrastructure and transport linkages in the less developed regions of China.
