Water 2050: Project Development & Sustainable Infrastructure Planning Energy Efficiency for Wastewater Systems
SUMMARY: Improving energy efficiency is an ongoing challenge for water-sector utilities.While energy costs often represent 25 to 30 percent of a plant’s total operation and maintenance costs, they also represent the largest controllable cost of providing water and wastewater services. This training will discuss energy efficiency issues and cover energy auditing methods, providing case studies to illustrate energy efficiency at a wastewater plant.
