Enhancing governance of energy and water interdependencies

Sep 24, 2015

Abstract

The Energy Research Partnership (ERP), UK Water Research and Innovation Partnership (UKWRIP) and The Infrastructure Transition Research Consortium (ITRC) have been working together with practitioners in government, industry and academia to explore ways to manage the complex interdependencies between the energy and water sectors in infrastructure and service delivery within the UK and to enhance their governance.

This policy note presents the findings of a series of collaborative workshops, wherein a large number of interdependencies between the energy and water sectors were identified, categorised and implications analysed. Game Theory is suggested as one way of addressing multi-actor, multi-objective governance problems related to sector interdependencies.
