Emerging Technologies: Power Plant Water Use: Water/Electricity Trade-Offs, Part 2
Continuing last month’s discussion on water/electricity trade-offs, this column explores power plant water use. The water consumed for evaporative cooling is not offset very much by power plant water consumption savings. There is a favorable trade-off with evaporative cooling between energy and water consumption for the consumer, at least based on typical electric energy and water rates.
