  • Workshop on The Application of Transformational Thinking to the Global Water Energy Nexus

    Date | Aug 14, 2015
    The INCOSE Colorado Front Range Chapter is hosting a 3-day workshop on the use of Transformational Systems Engineering (TSE) techniques to address one of the most important issues of our time, the Global Water Energy Nexus (GWEN). This workshop is a follow up to the March 2015 TSE Tutorial held at the Colorado School of Mines.

    The complex interdependencies between the generation and consumption of our energy and water resources display all the characteristics of a “wicked problem”. With current trends toward more water-intensive energy (e.g. biofuels, unconventional oil and gas production, and increasing water consumption for thermoelectric power) and more energy-intensive water (e.g. desalination, water treatment, or deeper ground water pumping and production), classical systems engineering techniques for implementing rigorous, disciplined, interdependent solutions starts to break down.  Our challenge, from a Systems Engineering perspective, is to apply TSE tools and best practices to GWEN.
