We've had discussions on here about how much electricity an oil refinery uses - a lot. Well, the UK is presently in an official drought due to 2 'dry' winters. There was an article on one of the tv channels that indicated that 60% of water use in the UK goes to power stations. Surely that can't be right can it? So where would I find the answers to this question than on this forum So how much water does a power station use (I'm leaving the fuel type the power station uses open)?
