Renewable energy (RE), water, and the environment are closely intertwined and have complex interrelationships, with these linkages being both direct and indirect. To identify solutions, benefit the economy, and meet sustainable development goals, it is necessary to pay considerable attention to the RE–water–environment (REWE) nexus. This chapter focuses on providing an introduction to the concept and issues surrounding the REWE nexus.
