    Hydropower uses the most water as this form of power derives all of its energy from the movement of water. Apart from this, Nuclear power uses a great deal of water as a means of storing all of the excess heat produced by the nuclear reactors. Due to their extreme water needs nuclear power plants are often built alongside large bodies of water such as lakes and rivers.

    In addition the realization that solar actually uses a great deal of water is becoming more apparent – the most effective use of solar is the heating of water to turn steam turbines – in order to cool this steam a large quantity of water is needed for wet cooling.
