Paper presents a data-driven, regional model that considers a wider array of climate variables to evaluate the impact of climate change on the coupled water and electricity demand nexus in the Midwestern USA. Results indicate that the climate-sensitive portions of summer electricity and water use are expected to increase in the region by 19% and 7%, respectively. Finally, the regional-scale model is leveraged to make city-level projections, indicating a 10–20% (2–5%) increase in electricity (water) use across the analyzed cities due to a warming climate.
