Energy Management Webcast Series for Water and Wastewater Utilities: Reducing Operating Costs with Energy Use Assessments and Auditing


Improving energy efficiency is an ongoing challenge for water sector utilities. While energy costs often represent 25–30% of a plant’s total O&M costs, they also represent the largest controllable cost of providing water and wastewater services. Since 2008, EPA has been working with water and wastewater utilities them sustainably manage energy and reduce costs.

This webcast will focus on two key elements of energy management for utilities—(1) determining how much energy your utility is using in each part of your operation and (2) conducting an energy audit to identify specific opportunities for greater efficiency and expected cost savings. Information on various assessment and audit tools will be provided, including those geared specifically to small and medium sized utilities.

Intended Audience: This workshop is open to the public.
