Projected freshwater needs of the energy sector in the European Union and the UK

Hidalgo González, Ignacio; Medarac, Hrvoje; Magagna, Davide

This dataset contains the projections of future freshwater demands of the energy sector (primary energy supply and transformation in power plants and oil refineries) in the EU and the United Kingdom for the period 2015-2050, in 5-year steps. The projections are estimated by the combination of water withdrawal and consumption factors for different energy technologies under six energy scenarios, at national and NUTS2 level, as described in the JRC technical report: Hidalgo Gonzalez, I., Medarac, H. and Magagna, D., Projected freshwater needs of the energy sector in the European Union and the UK, EUR 30266 EN, Publications Office of the European Union, Luxembourg, 2020, ISBN 978-92-76-19829-1 (online), doi:10.2760/796885 (online), JRC121030.
