Description In some arid and semiarid regions where most water is appropriated for irrigation, water has been recognized as the most important limiting factor for energy development. Therefore, a water transfer from agricultural to energy use should be considered. In this study, water values for energy and food production are first analyzed. Next, problems associated with transferring water from agriculture to energy are discussed. Then, an agricultural energy-water transfer model and an agricultural...
