Water and energy are closely interlinked and interdependent. Energy generation and transmission requires utilisation of water resources, particularly for hydroelectric, nuclear, and thermal energy sources.
Conversely, about 8% of the global energy generation is used for pumping, treating and transporting water to various consumers.
Objectives of World Water Day in 2014 include raising awareness of the inter-linkages between water and energy.
