Half a milliliter of water needed per Google search


The IEEE has released a unique map that shows the relationship between water and energy. Users scroll the world map and click on highlighted countries; data is then displayed giving an insight into the relationship between water and energy, the percentage of the population with access to clean water, renewable energy per capita and oil consumption per person and the methods being used to try to alleviate the problem of shortages.

Water shortages are becoming increasingly severe as the world struggles to produce the amount of power it requires; as a result several innovative schemes have been implemented over the globe. For example Singapore has introduced a scheme which collects and cleans waste water before reintroducing a small proportion of it back into the island’s main water supply. Scottsdale, Arizona, Northern Virginia  and Orange County California also have similar schemes.
