Except for wind power, none of these sources has grown much since in terms of either total electric power production or generation capacity. Water Resources Development In the last 30 years, changing values, political shifts, and economic constraints have resulted in major alterations in the Corps' water resources program. Beginning in the s, an increasingly urbanized, educated society focused more on recreation, environmental preservation, and water quality than on irrigation.

      For example, to bring desert land into production, water can be applied to the land, but only if groundwater or river water is available and if sufficient fossil energy is available to pump the water. This is the current practice in California and many other western states, enabling some of our western agricultural regions to be highly productive. withdrawals consumed in several Western States and roughly 80 percent nationwide (see chapter , Water Use and Pricing). However, expanding water demands for municipal, industrial, recreational, and environmental purposes increasingly compete for available water supplies. Since opportunities for large-scale water-supply development are limited.

Toward this need the fresh water consumed for energy production was mapped for almost 12 watersheds distributed across the economies comprising the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation. Energy development is the field of activities focused on obtaining sources of energy from natural resources.

These activities include production of conventional, alternative and renewable sources of energy, and for the recovery and reuse of energy that would otherwise be wasted.
