Energy

A necessity for meeting basic human needs like cooking and heating, access to a secure source of energy is a core component of sustainable development. energy is tightly interlinked with water. nearly all forms of energy require some amount of water as part of their production process. thermal power generation and hydropower, which respectively account for 80% and 15% of global electricity production, generally require large quantities of water. Conversely, energy is required for the collection, treatment and delivery of water. it has been estimated that electricity accounts for 5% to 30% of the total operating cost of water and wastewater utilities (World bank, 2012), but in some countries such as india and bangladesh, it can be as high as 40% (van den berg and danilenko, 2011).
