While fossil resources are a phaseout model, experts are not able to predict exactly when fossil energy resources will be exhausted. Nevertheless the effects of resource shortages are already leading to considerable rises in the cost of energy. Furthermore, topics such as political instabilities due to energy dependencies and insecurities as well as the challenges of global climate change should not be neglected. A reduction of fossil energy demand can be achieved by two means: either by the development of alternative energy resources or by an increase in energy efficiency.

The study shows that the emissions of SO2 and NOx are lower in comparison to coal and oil-fired power generation. The emissions of CO2 from combustion of rice husk are considered zero since they do not contribute to global warming. Overall, the study indicates that rice husk has a high potential for use as a feedstock for electricity production as it performs better than fossil fuels in terms of environmental emissions.

To supply approximately 60 million customers in Southern California, water is transported from the San Francisco Bay-Delta in a system which consists of ≈1,000 km open canals and pipelines. Although the system uses measures, such as energy recovery, the net energy consumption of the transport system amounts to approximately 5,100 GWh/a, which equates to 2-3% of the state electricity consumption (Cohen et al. 2004). 4 Innovative Energy Concepts in the Water Supply Sector There are several possibilities to save energy in water supply systems.
