Report summary

Almost all forms of energy production and power generation are dependent on water. Although agriculture uses two thirds of global freshwater supplies energy is by far the largest industrial user (using more than 15% and growing). With the UN predicting a 40% shortfall in global freshwater by 2030 the energy industry is under increasing scrutiny from government and the public on how it uses freshwater supplies.
