    Role of Water in the Energy Ecosystem: A blue revolution?

    Panel Energy Transition/Climate & Sustainability

    The energy transition will require not only new methods and technologies, but also existing inputs which may not be as easily accessible going forward as they are presently. Water is one such input, and its management will be crucial for companies attempting to adapt their energy portfolios. What is the role of water in the energy ecosystem? To what extent can we define the concept of a “blue revolution”?
