Water: Sustainable Infrastructure

Determining Energy Usage


power stripBy determining baseline energy use, water and wastewater utility managers and operators can better understand their electricity provider's rate structure and how their current operations impact energy costs within that structure. Further, energy-intensive processes such as pumping and aeration can be identified and prioritized for improvement.

Baseline energy use can be determined through third-party energy audits or self-assessments. Water utility professionals and technical assistance providers can benefit from the resources provided below, including a protocol for conducting energy audits, an energy self-assessment tool, and funding resources for implementing energy efficiency strategies.
