DESCRIPTION

[OS-RP-08] Large hydric infrastructures may envolve complex institutional, legal and technological arrangments that can move the whole enterprize from a enonomic sustainable scenario to an unsustainable one. The equilibrium point may be found by coupling innovative energy production systems with hydraulic infrastructure in order to reduce costs and allow the agricultural sector to access water. This session will present and discuss the Energy-Water coupling that has being planned to the Water Transfer Project of the São Francisco River  - PISF, as well as how it occurs in infrastructures of other countries as USA, China and Australia. It aims to identify similarities and convergences.
