Water and Energy in Engineering (World Engineering Day)

March 4 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm CET

Free

World Engineering Day is an occasion to recognise the crucial role engineers play in building a sustainable future. In this context, it is essential to address the importance of water, not only as a vital resource for human consumption, but also for energy production and the operation of Artificial Intelligence (AI) equipment.

Water is an essential component in the generation of energy, whether through hydroelectric, thermal or nuclear power. Moreover, in the field of AI, water plays a key role in cooling equipment, which often requires considerable consumption of this resource to maintain optimal performance.

However, the growing demand for water due to the development of AI poses significant challenges in terms of availability and sustainable management of this resource. It is essential to move towards an AI development model that minimises its water footprint and promotes water-efficient practices.

To achieve this balance between technological advancement and environmental sustainability, it is necessary to promote research and development of more water-efficient AI technologies, as well as to promote policies and regulations that encourage the adoption of sustainable practices in industry.

Ultimately, World Engineering Day reminds us of the importance of addressing today’s challenges from a holistic perspective, seeking solutions that not only boost economic competitiveness, but also contribute to the preservation of our natural resources and the well-being of future generations.
