The future of the world's energy and water systems are intimately linked tother. The increases in population and technology increase the demand for both resources. Therefore, scarcity in water and energy threatens societies' progress, economic development, and well-being.
Often scarcity is caused by mismanagement of resources. Furthermore, climate change adds uncertainty and challenges to the future level and continuity of resources.
At 2w2e, we apply state-of-the-art tools in water management, climate change, extreme climatic conditions, sustainable energy, and ecosystem services. In addition, we work on smart solutions and innovations to mitigate the scarcity in future water resources and energy production strategies.
Our water research and activities focus on watershed modeling, river basin management, water quantity and quality, and crop yield simulation in small and large watersheds on the water issue. Our energy research and activities focus on developing sustainable heat extraction techniques from abandoned mine tunnels, geothermal energy, and small-scale hydropower energy production.
We have developed many applications to facilitate modeling earth and atmospheric phenomena. Our products in system analyses are used in more than 95 countries in a great variety of commercial and research outcomes. In addition, to train and educate users, we provide regular workshops.
