In recent years, with the socio-economic development, energy production and water consumption have been given more and more scientific, political and public concern. Taking Hebei Province, China as, an example, this paper performs an in-depth analysis of the energy production and water consumption. In this study, the water withdrawals and water consumption associated with energy production in Hebei Province from 2015 to 2050 were estimated by using the bottom-up Long-range Energy Alternative Planning model, which established three scenarios based on three different development models. The results show that the energy production and their associated water requirements would continue to grow at a high speed in the Reference Scenario. The energy production and their associated water withdrawals and water consumption were found to have decreased sharply in the coordinated development scenario and the strong emission reduction scenario compared to the reference scenario. It shows that industrial restructuring, energy structure optimization and the renewable energy replacement have played an important role in energy-efficient and water-efficient in coordinated development scenario and strong emission reduction scenario. Further coordinated management policy on water and energy should be fully considered to promote the sustainable management of water and energy in Hebei Province.
