This paper discusses the demand for water from the fossil energy sector. In addition to demand, some resource acquisition practices may contribute to adverse water impacts and contamination. This paper summarizes the current water-related RD&D activities currently sponsored by DOE/FE and implemented by NETL in the areas of fossil-fuel-based thermoelectric power generation, coal mining, and oil and natural gas production.
