Research Thesis Topic
Water Energy Food Nexus
The agri-food chain consumes about one third of the world’s energy production and 80-90% of total global freshwater use. The water energy food nexus is also well documented globally. Optimal water efficiency in irrigation can only be achieved by piping irrigation networks. Operating such systems however involves far higher energy usage. This project will study and compare the different measures to optimise energy productivity and sustainability including the uses of renewable energy in agriculture.
