ESSIC Interim Director Fernando Miralles-Wilhelm is a co-author of a new working paper published by the World Bank. The article examines the intersection of water and energy in China, a country that relies heavily on water to support its coal-based energy production. Such production has boomed with China’s economic development. The Chinese government has taken initiatives to conserve water and to create more water-efficient coal-fired plants. The report is part of the World Bank’s Thirsty Energy project, which aims to help countries find solutions at the water-energy nexus.
