Water has a profound influence on energy consumption in cities, accounting for some 10% of primary energy use when the effect of supply, use and disposal are considered. Minimising water-related energy is a multi-dimensional and generational challenge. It will necessitate the innovative planning, design and management of systems, cities, and buildings. It will require new innovation in engineering and technology as well as social, architectural, and economic contributions. Examples include developing low-energy water systems, optimising process selection and scale based on end use, and using water to mitigate urban heat. This Special Issue aims to bring together recent research on the energy influence of water including water provision, use and disposal. It particularly encourages quantification of the energy (and greenhouse gas)-intensity of urban water, frameworks for understanding water-related energy, and understanding water efficiency in terms of the broader functions water delivers.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Water is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
