In 2019, global energy consumption was 173.34Tn KWh1. The world continues to derive 84% (~146.1Tn KWh) of energy from fossil fuel1, accounting for ~3/4 of global GHG emissions and impacting climate change 2. Moreover, water scarcity is a prevailing issue as ~ two-thirds of the world's population lives in water-stressed regions3. The annual global water consumption is estimated to be 4Tn m34. The redirection, overuse, and pollution of water can cause ecosystem collapse, harming the environment5.
